A lot cheaper than having a system that means some don't have to wait for up to 20 minutes...

Yes, I noticed that coming back from Reading late the other night. I bet they are a cheaper design.

I cannot understand why many drivers just sit in their cars with the engine running.
I have always switched off if I wait for more than a couple of minutes with no foreseeable movement.

Just the other day, I went into the Onestop in Avon Way. There was someone outside waiting for someone shopping. I was at least ten minutes being served (one assistant, many customers). On exit, the driver was still sat there chugging away. The shopper appeared just after I got into my car. A total waste of fuel/generating unnecessary polution.

Nope a valid post, but the public are stupid so if you need to tell the to turn their engines off then they prob won't understand why.

Sorry Andy Capp every road in another neck of the woods is owned by
Benyon Estates. About a bus pass away They are all Berkshire names.
Ufton,Mortimer and Englefield. Without looking or walking about I would expect others.

And I got accused of being boring. Still the weather is terrible.
So that is normal for English.

If you have a modern car and you switch off the ignition when the engine is not up to temperature you can flood the engine. (At least that's what happened to me when I moved the car off the drive to hoover it- apparently it is something to do with cutting down on co2 emissions?)

On the poster front- absolutely pathetic. If they're that concerned about pollution build us a ******** bridge then I just have to spend hours a month waiting for the barriers to go up!

Only certain cars such as Mazda RX8's and a few other cars.

I agree with your last point about the bridge.

Posters = a few hundred quid, no disruption
Building a new bridge = a few million quid and months of disruption

I see a lot of cars idling whilst stationary, when they are clearly not going anywhere soon. It really bugs me.
