Definitely. You see those people that clear out a tiny square in the windshield and then tear off down the road. It's too cold, you see, to stand out there and do the whole thing-- and they haven't got the TIME to sit there waiting for the engine to warm up and let the defrosters do it for them, so there they go, to heck with everyone else.
Good thing the block heater has made my windows clear off with minimal effort before I leave the driveway, so I can better see and avoid them.
