So there's this annoying red light on my way to work. When the light turns red, it is one minute and twenty seconds until it turns green again (I timed it). So if I am the first or second person at the light, I put the car in neutral and turn off the ignition.
Will this in fact save any gas? Are there any other downsides to doing this? My wife claims it's dangerous (it is not a dangerous neighborhood).
So am I saving any gas, or am I taking this "green" thing too far?
Thanks in advance,
