Very useful for cars parked on private driveways.
Could be a problem if it was parked on a road or public place though.
Actually not so bad for public places as the car must be locked for remote start to work - and (I think) will lock the car automatically if it isn't already.....

I'm fairly sure it's illegal to have the engine running in an unoccupied car on public roads. Admittedly it's locked and can't be driven so it might make an interesting test case in law.

Also, there's bound to be some muppet who sees it, assumes it can be driven and tries to break in.

You are correct - it is a breach of law.

Section 107 of The Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 regarding unattended vehicles applies, on a public road (and the meaning public road has been extended to car parks to which the public have the right of or authorized access - such as supermarkets or pubs etc.).

So, it does not apply to private driveways - at the moment.

The wording of the legislation is such that it would be a pretty straight forward conviction.

Leaving motor vehicles unattended

107.—(1) Save as provided in paragraph (2), no person shall leave, or cause or permit to be left, on a road a motor vehicle which is not attended by a person licensed to drive it unless the engine is stopped and any parking brake with which the vehicle is required to be equipped is effectively set.

(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—

(i) drive machinery forming part of, or mounted on, the vehicle and used for purposes other than driving the vehicle; or

(ii) maintain the electrical power of the batteries of the vehicle at a level required for driving that machinery or apparatus.

(3) In this regulation “parking brake” means a brake fitted to a vehicle in accordance with requirement 16 or 18 in Schedule 3.

Actually I'm surprised that ERS is even allowed given the environmental impact. Several other countries don't allow it so perhaps its days are numbered.

I daresay that will be interesting to those who just leave it in P without applying the Parking brake

Been in contact with my supplying dealer and they will quite happily setup my Volvo ID with the VIN number and registration number ahead of my delivery next week. I should then get an email with the PIN enclosed.

No issue at all, and that's the supplying dealer on behalf of Tuskerdirect.
