: At a red light is it best to leave the car in gear, or put it in neutral? Also, better to leave car in gear when parked or in neutral? I'd like your opinions. Thanks

At a light (and stopping coming to a light) I put it in neutral. Keeping the clutch engaged can promote premature wear on the clutch. You should ALWAYS put the car in gear when parked to keep the car from rolling. (I have forgot from time to time to set the parking brake)
