    Yes I did when we were in daycare, but I have a keyless start so you can't put it in gear if the key isn't in the car. I can obviously lock it, too. Our daycare was off a quiet neighborhood road anyways so i would leave it on and open with Keys in it without thinking twice.

    @mediagirl: I have remote start and always start it up as I head into daycare so that it's warm for LO!

    It doesn't bother me that people do it, but I personally don't. The reason is only because sometimes my car will lock when the door is shut if the car is on, and then I'm not able to get back in. So i don't want to risk it. But I'm also paranoid about car theft too.
    We go to an in-home daycare, so that might be why more parents feel comfortable leaving their car running.

    Our daycare is on a university campus so you can't actually park right out front the daycare without getting a parking ticket. We have a pass for a lot next to it but it's such a distance no one leaves their car running.

    I have remote start so I would probably do this if I had a quick drop off.

    I do it. It's too dang cold. Campus Police patrol so I'm really not that worried about it.
