On private property that should not be a problem. We have a 'Stop and Rob'
down the street where the local cops make it a habit of citing drivers that
go inside and let their vehicle unattended and running. They leave a $98
citation on the car and a note to pick up the keys at the precinct ;)
He's right though. It is illegal, at least for sure on public
roadways but I think also even in places considered "public" like
store parking lots etc. On your own private property though, it's
okay. At least in my state.
It may be illegal in some states to leave your car running - as in, to walk
away from it, but it is far from illegal to exit your car while it is
running. There are plenty of reasons why one would do so. At that, it's a
sideline to the original point though. There are other occupants besides a
driver who might have cause to exit a car.
I don't do home work for my own grand children why would I do yours? If you
want to lean something for a change start with a search of Title #75 in PA,
then you can search New York, New Jersey and Delaware
