Hey, ku_law, maybe if you actually studied law once in a while instead of lying in wait at your computer so you can post first on every ljworld article you would know that it's against the law, in this case a city ordinance, to leave a running car unattended. Furthermore, in many states, an owner who does leave a running car unattended can be held civilly liable for damages caused by the thief who makes off with the car.

All the time. I have a sign in my car,"Steal This Car". Somebody did once. They brought it back. Nobody likes '77 Impala wagons, nobody . . .

Yup, like to get it up to operating temp and defrost windows - nice to have warm air on the feet when it's cold outside.

How about Wikipedia-like editing of articles, before they get published. We could fix the title in this case.

I only leave my car running when I have to go to the bathroom. I'm an old woman with a weak bladder.

What is the "it" part of this equation? Ok...I understand leaving the car in a running manner, but what is the "it" that I might be warming? I tried leaving the car once in a walking fashion, and that didn't work out so well. Running is probably a better way.....

Nope, I usually just walk when leaving the car.
