If you are shifting every five seconds in stop-and-go traffic you are doing something wrong.

Because ATs in stop & go traffic don't require any footwork at all, I guess.

In my MT, when the stop & go is stopped I can take both feet off the pedals if I want.

At least the Toyotas I drove required one foot on the brake everytime. Took it off and it started accelerating while on gear.

My father used to do it more often, but I haven't seen him doing it for a while.

If you leave more that 4ft gap between you and the front vehicle, in Smell-A where Tahoe drives, somebody is going to try and fit their car in that space
