    As an Englishman recently moved to the United States (which I love), I am curious about why some people stop their vehicles two or three car-lengths from the line at traffic lights.

    I do not have a car, so I have to do a lot of walking. I actually prefer it if people stop farther back at intersections. It really bothers me when I am trying to cross a major intersection on foot, and a car pulls too far forward and blocks the crosswalk, so I have to step into a busy intersection with cars whizzing by. It is much safer for pedestrians if drivers give them space to cross streets safely rather than pull too far forward.
