Save gas, quit idling

Even as the complaints via the B.C. news media persist over "sky-high" gasoline prices, I still see daily the usual large number of parked vehicles idling for multiple minutes. Particularly noteworthy were the exhaust spewing vanity vehicles, a couple with the signature superfluously very large body and wheels that don't at all appear used for work or family transport. (They're the same gratuitously tall monsters that when parked roadside hazardously block the view of short-car operators turning or crossing through stop-signed intersections; and they look as though they might get about 25 gallons to the mile.)

Inside were their operators staring down into their laps, probably their smartphones.
