PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) - The Flying J Travel Center in Pearl celebrated the grand opening of the state's first Idle Air System. Truckers can now turn their engines off while they sleep, thanks to this new service.

They simply pull into one of the parking slots where big green hoses will be hooked up to the cab to pump in air conditioning, heating and electricity.

The service is cheaper than burning the diesel during truckers required rest periods. The new facility is funded in part by the State Department of Environmental Quality.
