Should smaller vehicles pull directly in front of a semi when traffic is stopping for a red light?
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

!5, 18, or Auto ?

Traction Control(computer) or Throttle Control and a little left foot brake to optimize climbing traction ?

Left foot brake so as to be able to continue downshifting 2,3,4 gears at a shot, to stop ?

Legally they can. Out of courtesy no. It happens to me countless times. It gets frustrating because I have to come to a complete stop now instead of slowly idling up until the light turns green.

I prefer 18 speeds. Drove an automatic for a week. They're great on the highway but horrible for off highway. Never again.

Lost me on the Traction control/Throttle control. I prefer my right foot, experience, and common sense

Left foot for braking???? Thats just crazy talk.
