Lol! Actually this is just for gits and shiggles... how many of you guys with the Geartronic Transmission still pull the E-Brake when parked (at least 75% of the time)???

Re: E-Brake Question!! MANDATORY RESPONSE NEEDED!!! (s40boy)

I think it is a law in some states (Wa?) but I am now out of the habit. I only pull it when I am parked on any sort of incline.

I don't doubt that it's the law up here. Just to shed some light on WA laws....
WA also has a law that you have to back into your driveway.
In Seattle, Washington, it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon that is over six feet in length.
In Auburn Men who deflower virgins, regardless of age or marital status, may face up to five years in jail.
In Wilber, WA, You may not ride an ugly horse
In WA State, All lollipops are banned.

LOL.

I love the fact that you can park either way on the side of the road in Wa. Not sure I explained that very well but I got in the habit then moved here and almost got a ticket.

I like the "you can only park on the side of the street you can drive on" law. It makes it easy to tell if you're turning onto a one way street or not, if all the cars are facing one way regardless of which side of the street they're parked on.

I LOVE traffic circles!!! They are WAY better / more efficient than traffic lights... too bad they are a rare sight to see in the south!

They are super fun driving around in the middle of the night.
That is where I first tested out my car tires.

So you aren't allowed to drive straight into your driveway, and you can't buy a lollipop anywhere? haha.
