Foreign nationals are generally the most polite, some look slightly shocked / embarrassed and turn it off quickly. Ocado Drivers and similar tell me sometimes that the engine is running they freezer. Well, guess what, fuck your freezer, and fuck everyone too lazy to go to the shop themselves. Perhaps these vans mean fewer car trips to the shops though. Still hate them.
Coaches from europe are fucking terrible. Three in a row told me the engine was running the electrics. But turned off when I insisted.
Only the English are rude / agressive. Ignorant entitled fuckers. I think smart phones are to blame for alot of idling. "I'm just leaving anyway" followed by another 5 minutes of zombie glazed over thumb swiping.

Britain's Toxic Air Scandal
Just found this app which helps you find routes through london with cleaner air. I asked it to route me from Woolwich to Gipsy Hill, my commute and a route I know well. It made a couple of questionable decisions, but I'm always looking for quieter ways into work. Going to try the new route today.
