And perfectly legal in all states as far as I know.
When installed right, absolutely. My last car (2008 Mazdaspeed 3) I installed an HKS turbo timer... properly wired, it would only keep the car running if the e-brake was engaged. Otherwise it just let out a long beep and let the car shut off. Was very helpful in reminding me to engage the e-brake when parking :D
