Driving habits in General Discussion Posted 20 hours ago · Edited 20 hours ago by Flivverking (see edit history) Excessive idling is one of the biggest wastes of fuel..and does build up a little more unwanted heat . Sitting in front of a house or at a store pick up ,waiting on poeple or at a railroad stop for a slow moving frieght I kill the motor. An old long forgotten driving courtesy I practice is, if there is car a head waiting to pull out into traffic the 5th car driving in street is to let them out..If your that 5th car,you let them go. One other old time thing is." You see yellow,you see RED! Only a real moron in a vintage car would run a yellow light or blow a red. Never pull so close to a car ,even stoped, that you can see it's tires on the road. And last for now..Don't pull over the white stop line ,when you stop. Or so close to a traffic light you can't see it ,in the normal seated driving postion. At 2am...with no traffic..anything goes , till you see a cop!
