Many people internally seem to think they need to shoot off from the Stop Light like it's Nascar in order to "keep the traffic flowing" (or something?), but taking 3-5 extra seconds to get to peak speed is not going to cause traffic jams.

Another one is don't drive with the windows rolled down, that makes for terrible aerodynamics and causes lots of drag. Clean air filters is another improvement anyone can easily do.
The whole right hand turn thing is based on not having to sit and wait for an arrow or for traffic in order to turn left, which sometimes happens when turning right also. This really only benefits folks who drive all day every day, i.e the fedex/ups/mail drivers. They're the ones that did the math and figured that one out.
