Or specific to Remote start on manual transmissions?

The only law I know here in Oklahoma even coming close is leaving your car running with the keys in it. I know its a hefty fine but I dont think there is anything on the books here prohibting a remote starter. I could be wrong.

Ill ask a cop friend of mine.

not aware of any here, but there are in Europe... in most countries you can only leave a vehicle running so many minutes, usually 3-5.....

Here in Germany it is illegal to leave a vehicle running if no one is in it. Oh well, I installed my remote start over the weekend, I will take my chances. I am out of here in August anyways.

No less strict than in our very own.  Trust me.

I am not aware of any laws here in the states that ban them, but IMO it is stupid to do on a manual regardless of safety precautions taken.

There isn't a law against it.  It's merely a safety and liability issue.

Not quite true... Several States in the US are considering adopting laws to dissuade idling, unattended vehicles (and have been for several years). Alaska ALREADY HAS SUCH A LAW IN EFFECT!

From Title 9 of the Alaskan Statutes:

"No person driving or in charge of a motor vehicle may permit it to stand on a public street unattended without first stopping the engine, locking the ignition, effectively setting the brake thereon and, when standing upon any grade, turning the front wheels to the curb or side of the highway.... If a vehicle is left running in a public or private parking lot, the hand brake shall be left on and any automatic transmission shall be placed in the 'park' mode."

This law is actively enforced on public right-of-ways, with a first offense costing $40, and a second offense requiring mandatory court appearance.

Also, these bills are not based upon safety or liability but upon environmental concerns - unnecessary emissions and degradation of our atmosphere. New York, New Jersey, California, Florida, and Arizona are the states that I can remember off the top of my head pursuing such bills. However, I don't believe any have yet to make it past the floors of the State Senates to the respective governors' offices.

Fun, fun, fun...

That law seems rather ambiguous to me. Because the way I'm interpreting that, is that you CAN have a remote start in your vehicle IF you use it in your driveway, but if you're out shopping or sitting in front of someone's house with your car on the street, you CAN'T have your remote start running the car (which seems especially silly coming from one of the coldest states in the US).

But then again, I've fought the law here in ND on two separate occasions pertaining to my remote start, and I used to be a police officer - so WTF do we know?? posted_image
