Don't turn on the engine if its not needed

There are some situations in which turning on the engine is not needed, in my case I do it when I have to move some feet my car to give way on a parking lot or so, taxi drivers in my city do it as well. It may sound dumb, but by doing this you avoid operating the engine when less efficient because of the cold starts. Also, when you hit a big traffic jam like when some accident happened and traffic is not moving you can turn it off, or if a cop or somebody stops you to have a chat you can switch it off as well. The thing is: try to use the engine only when is really needed.
