I always thought it's a Road Traffic Act offence to run a car without a driver present, usually called "Quitting". What's the advantage if you have to be with the car?

I park the car on my private drive and when at work it's parked in the company car park, as both are private propriety I don't think that applies.

Also I though the rule was you was not allow to leave a car running with the key's in the ignition? same as if you are drunk with the key's in the ignition you could be prosecuted regardless if the engine was running or not??

A friend got done for drunk driving as he was asleep in the car but the key's were in the ignition switch, but he was sleeping in the back seat of the car.

From the regs:

(2) The requirement specified in paragraph (1) as to the stopping of the engine shall not apply in respect of a vehicle—

(a) being used for ambulance, fire brigade or police purposes; or

(b) in such a position and condition as not to be likely to endanger any person or property and engaged in an operation which requires its engine to be used to— vehicle must be in park for the remote to work and you have to push the "lock button" 3 times for the vehicle to start up
