I leave for work early in the morning (5:15) and sometimes "roll" through the neighborhood Stop signs for convenience and to save a little time and fuel. I know I should come to a complete stop, but was wondering if anyone else does this?

no - I do a full stop at a stop sign. Rolling through even a "yield" sign can be risky.

Me rolling through stops has nothing to do with saving fuel.

No. If anything, I make more of a complete stop than most people.

Hmmm.... I full stop most of the time. But I see many drivers, cars, cycles, bicycles, coast on by, especially on right turns.

My thoughts are that 85% of drivers really don't know what or why their vehicles need a transmission to begin with, (main reason ?)but just accept that fact. Also most driver's thoughts are far farther away at stop signs, idle thoughts of saving fuel by rolling on.

I still remember My first year for Science class, not all things studied but most anyway, and that was a big help for my economy driving. Even "Mister Wizard" the TV show had great info!

Problem is that many stop signs should just be yeild signs.
