    The cops care so much about you and your family they will charge you for not sitting in your car for 5 minutes. If they cared so much why ain't they chasing the car thief instead of the tax payer?

    ROELAND PARK, Kan. - A split second decision you make in the morning might cost you a $125 ticket. If you live in Kansas, you could be breaking the law and not even know it. We're all probably guilty of this at some point. You hop in your car, fire it up, then leave your keys in the ignition as you run inside to finish getting ready or grab the kids. In Kansas, that's illegal and it'll cost you. Police officers in Roeland Park are cracking down this winter. You might notice officers cruising through neighborhoods looking for running cars. Once they spot one, the officer will jump out of his or her vehicle and checks to see if keys are in the ignition. Last week, in just a two-hour span, one officer wrote nine tickets and gave four warnings. Officer John DeMoss says they're not trying to bully drivers but keep thieves at bay. "Your car can be stolen in a matter of seconds. During my recent enforcement I did stop, go up to the vehicle and look inside the car or open the door and a lot of times the owner of the car never came outside to contact me and say hey what are you doing around my car? That's plenty of time for somebody to steal your vehicle," DeMoss said. It happens more often than you think. In just the past month, 38 cars have been stolen in Johnson County while the owner was warming them up. Most of those, 21, were reported in Overland Park. Last winter, in Johnson County alone, more than 60 cars were stolen while left running idle. Remote starts are ok. As long as your keys are not in the ignition, officers say they won't ticket you. However, if the keys are in the car, regardless of whether the car is locked out not, that is illegal. Some insurance companies will not cover stolen cars that are left idling because they consider that driver negligence.

    Oh really? Then Officer DeMoss and his porcine buddies should concentrate on keeping niggers away from places where there are things to steal. Fuckin' scumbag cop cocksucker.

    An advisable alternative if one lives in Kansas, and one's house has an attached garage, would be to just open the garage door halfway and let the car warm up while parked in there. The cop cannot legally enter your premises without a search warrant, so if he sets foot in your garage without your knowledge or permission and issues a ticket, he's performing an illegal police action and the ticket won't hold up in court.

    Guidelines To Warm Up Your Car Legally In Cold Weather


    To play by the rules and have a warm car, more and more drivers[IMG] are having remote car starters installed. That way you can stay in your warm house the whole time your car is warming up. It is legal to leave your car idling with a remote starter because there are no keys in the ignition, and the car can’t move without the keys.
    At Dealer Automotive in Hopkins, they’re so busy with installations you have to wait a week to get in. Owner Steve Rush says remote starters don’t void any car warranties if they are put in properly.
    “It’s a common misconception being in the business[IMG], we try to calm them a little bit,” Rush said. “It most definitely should be done by a professional. My guys in the shop here having been doing it in upwards for 20 years. It’s very involved.”
    If you try to lock your running car, be careful not to break the Minneapolis idling law which is set at three minutes. Those remotes start at $300.
    The higher end models — the ones you start from your phone — can be closer to $700.

    It's just another way for our anarcho-tyrannical system to tax working people to pay for useless niglets.

    It doesn't get cold enough here to worry about warming up your car. (beyond the little bit you would normally run it after starting)
