    One of the great mysteries of the universe, at least to me, is why people stop fifty feet behind other cars at traffic lights. If everyone did that, only a few cars would get through each light. Are there invisible cars out there that I'm not seeing?

    They should be sent to India, say Delhi, to see how every inch of road is precious and cannot be wasted in this cavalier manner. :)

    You shouldn't tailgate someone, but leaving two full car lengths when stopped is ridiculous. It is also inconsiderate.

    It is perfectly acceptable to be at your tail end at a traffic light, which is what we are talking about here. Anyone who has a problem with that is weird. :)
