Has anyone ever, as a kid, put a car into neutral while it is parked on a sloped surface?
I did this when I was a kid. It was back in the 70's and I was supposed to be in a church service. I missed all the other cars and someone helped me get the car to stop. I lied to my parents about knowing why the car was in a different spot. I found out my mom had been informed of what happened by at least five different people. For some reason, people loved to tell on me when I was a kid. I was wondering if there were any similar stories floating around Hubpages. Feel free to write hubs.
I have never done this, but I have dreams about this. I was afraid to stay in the car alone when I was little. I'm glad you survived!
Having moved to the mountains from the flatland, I did it once as an adult. (As a kid, there literally were NO hills where I grew up). My husband had a fit when I did it as an adult, and I've been very careful ever since! Luckily I was in the car and able to stop it before it rolled into his pick up truck.
I very stupidly had my car in park in my driveway, engine running and my two year old was in the front seat by this time as I was opening the old fashioned garage door that was two large wooden doors that slide to the left and right of the garage. By the time I turned around my two year old was staring at me under the steering wheel eyes as big as saucers, she had put the car in neutral and I was suddenly pinned up against the garage door. I don't remember this hurting but I had to push the car out of the way so I could get inside to shut it off!
Lesson here...don't unbuckle your child and leave the car running!
