Last year they talked about exploding oil trains. Well, instead of transporting oil by train, the safest way is to transport it through pipelines. Since there is not a cheaper alternative yet, time to build the KEYSTONE PIPELINE. I applaud these youngsters and others who are trying to help the environment.

If you're talking about direct fuel injected cars controlled by ECU's (which is a lot of them) then yes, turning off the vehicle will save fuel. However, if it's not warmed up you're going to have a dump of raw fuel on start each time too which then the system will try to burn off prior to spewing out the exhaust pipe (it's basically a recycle system to prevent unburnt fuel from going out the tailpipe, which is what a backfire is caused by). It's not a myth, it's just that people don't know how old and new engines work and how they are different. Tesla's put out the same toxic brake dust into our waterways as the gas and diesel vehicles, yay for asbestos (which causes cancer, don't touch your wheels, they are covered in asbestos dust). http://www2.epa.gov/asbestos/us-federal-bans-asbestos Actually, it depends on the vehicle.

Glad nobody was hurt, not even the spirits of the sign-makers.
