Attorney General Letitia James announced a lawsuit Thursday against major Brooklyn-based school bus operator Jofaz for consistently violating city and state laws against vehicle idling, which she says has led to negative health ramifications for the youngest New Yorkers.

The city’s anti-idling regulations prohibit any operator from idling a motor vehicle for more than three minutes, with limited exceptions, with the time reduced to one minute around schools, while state regulations prohibit idling beyond five minutes.
