I remember back in the day when I was a young lad first learning how to drive a manual transmission. My father repeated one essential learning point to me over and over: "Son, treat your parking brake like your [colorful term for a part of the male anatomy]—always grab it, touch it and most importantly, use it." And to this date I have followed those guidelines and never yet had to deal with a runaway vehicle. These hoons, on the other hand, haven't followed my old man's wisdom. Such a simple thing, so easy to overlook. I guess they could always claim a wonky throttle. [Neatorama]
