LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - As the temperatures fall you might be tempted to leave your car running as you run errands, but you could be fined if you leave your car running in La Crosse.

A City ordinance does not allow people to leave their car on public streets or in public parking areas with the keys inside. It becomes more of an issue during the winter as many people try to warm their car before driving.

The fine for leaving keys in an unattended car is $124.
