I hate to use this word, but it depends. If it is 15 degrees or colder, I warm up my car for my wife also. You are really not supposed to warm up cars though

Sometimes. it's legal here, but parts of MD it's illegal to leave your car running unattended in a driveway because it's an invitation for car thieves.

Here in Tampa Bay, a citizen felt the need to warm up the car.

The local law enforcement issued a $169 ticket for reckless operation.

Justification was leaving cars unattended encouraged car theft.

Add to that is is also unlawful to engage in acts of compassion such as helping those without food and throwing a ball in a park.
