There are a few of them but hardly any in my country and lots of them I think in Japan. They are meant to save petrol.
Could you imagine a city full of cars constantly starting day in and day out. Watch the video to get an idea.

That would be extremely annoying. Plus starting the car off and on again repetitively could cause excessive wear to the battery, alternator or the actual engine itself.
But well yeah look I can see how Japan is trying to save petrol and the economy, But we have a car here (one that my older sister owns) and what it features is that when you are at a traffic light, the car goes into neutral mode (but the engine is still running) it's very quiet, that you would think the car is turned off. But when the green light flashes back on, you press the accelerator and the car boostes up and drives off as if it was on the entire time. You don't need to turn it on or off, nothing like that. I think that is what Japan should look into.0
