years ago, my brother and I had the same model car. His was auto, Mine was a stick. I had to borrow his for a couple days while mine was in the shop. My house was on a slight hill and I typically left it in gear and hopped out. I forgot to put his car in park and hoped out, only to see the car roll away. I managed to catch it and hop in before any damage occurred.

It's my understanding that people have gotten run over by their own cars and killed doing what we did. After I jumped back into my SUV and put it in park, I started shaking. If I had fallen, I might have been run over, and if I had failed to stop the vehicle, it might have hurt or killed someone else.

I'm glad I did it, although it was purely instinctive. The alternative was unthinkable.
