The title itself is misleading, sounding whether we hate to own a car that is slow off the block. Whereas what the OP means is to have such a car immediately ahead of us at a signal. It should read "Do you hate to be behind a car that is slow off the block at a traffic signal?".

Autowalls they take the cream of this cake rather than indicas, specially those auto wallas which either turn the auto off or are trying to inch past some other vehicle on the road.
Personally i try and avoid being behind them on a red light

It's so they can get to the internet more quickly to post about how "fuel efficiency" is the most important thing to them .

Well even if you take off quick from the first signal, you will see another red light next and people who took off slow will be right behind you!! It doesn't matter how quick you are in the city traffic, you will reach your destination at almost the same time! Well it's different on a highway though! Yes it is indeed frustrating to be behind any vehicle which is moving slow. Here is the trick to calm your nerves. Take a deep breath and say "Whhooossaahhhh"

Note from Mod : Topic discussed enough. Thread closed
