I'm figuring that it will only work in some strange circumstances for cars (like if you live on a mountain).

<div><br></div><div>For instance when I see a red light (or anticipate it), I get off the gas and start coasting. I arrive at the light just when it's green. So I never piled on the gas to get to the red light, then hit the break, then had to get back up to speed. If you're driving properly in the first place you're not going to waste enough energy to recover.</div>
<div><br></div><div>To make it work for me, I'd have to intentionally accelerate towards a red light so I could then use the brakes.</div>
