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?

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!

Rolling through has nothing to do with saving fuel.

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

I am so guilty of that, all day long in my neighborhood. Better fuel savings and wear and tear. Gotta be very careful though.

Actually I don't, but it happens at the 1...1.5 MPH. level at times, always at a clear-view 4 way 25 MPH zone area, if at all. Most of these could be a yield, but then that old saying "Give an Inch and they will take a Mile"! VERY TRUE! I see plenty staying Stopped also so as to play with their texting, actually Stopped with no regards for the intersection for others/users.
Maybe their sign never reads GO now..... 60+ seconds later? DUH X 5!
