Do you think it should be illegal to leave your car running while unattended?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 9, 2005
“I didn’t know that it was, but it shouldn’t be. I don’t think people should leave their kids in the car while it’s running or anything, but you should be able to warm up your car in the morning.”
“I guess I’m pretty neutral on the issue. You should probably be able to leave it running as long as you can keep an eye on it.”
“Yeah, I do actually. If not just because there aren’t enough people who know that if someone takes your car while it’s running, it’s not technically considered stolen.”
“Absolutely not. It’s one’s own responsibility. If people want to leave their car running and run the risk of it being stolen, that’s their business. If it’s your car, it should be your choice.”
