With the key in the ignition, automatic transmissions may be shifted “out of park” even if the vehicle’s engine is off and the driver’s foot is not on the brake. If the ignition key is left in and turned to the accessory mode (to listen to the radio, open and close windows, etc.) a vehicle’s automatic transmission may be shifted out of “Park” if the driver or a passenger moves the gear selector. If a child is left alone in a motor vehicle, whether the engine is running or not, it doesn’t take long for a child to unintentionally set your car in motion.
