These cars (BMW) will turn off when at a stop light and when the light turns green, start up again and off you go. Apparently it is a gas-saving technique. Now, I am going to admit that I have always heard that starting and stopping a car engine wastes gas and puts wear and tear on things...Now they say different
COMING SOON TO AMERICA
Not only that, but American cars will be introducing this in 2012 as a standard feature. I am not sure this is a good thing or a sales gimmick. I know they are always trying to come up with reasons why people should buy such and such a car. Is this a compelling enough reason?
PRICE OF GAS GOING UP 2012
The price of gas is going up again starting next year. How very convenient and nice of all the investors, and of corporate to allow us some slack during the holidays. Now, we can take the money we are saving and spend it on other things. Then, next year, they can get it back by squeezing the captive consumer dry
THE AMISH...THEY SIT BACK AND WATCH ALL THIS
The Amish have no worries here...They sit back and watch all this while their horse and carriages take them to and fro. The horse gets a rub-down, perhaps an apple and is allowed to roam after a hard days work. The car on the other hand gets garaged, needs cleaning, and doesn't care who drives it. The horse does...
There are no horse jacking like there are car-jackings. In fact, horse stealing was at some point a hanging offense. Today, if you take someones auto, they call it GTA or grand theft auto. There is no GTH or grand theft horse nor does anyone want to steal one to begin with
There is no market for horse parts either. Whereas you can strip down a car and in some cases the parts are worth more than the car itself. If you do not want to entertain horses, there is always the tried, true, and trusty Bicycle. In my city and the surround areas, there is a big push for bike lanes.
I would love to see that come back no problem
