I had a guy in a commercial van behind me lay on his horn when I was doing that the other day. I think they call that 'hurry up an wait'
When I drove into San Francisco one time, I remember that at almost every light I heard 2 other people starting their engine along with me at the green! That was a good day. However, I haven't encountered anyone doing that for a few months now.
