You dont even need the keys to put a vehicle into gear in some cars. I know of cars that the brake pedal safety contraption is broken, allowing you to put the car into drive without applying the brake. Its rather common in older vehicles. An ex of mine actually got into his moms mustang when he was 3 and rolled it into a barn, that car was a 5 speed which is much easier to do.
Unfortunately the only way to prevent this is to...
A) Lock your doors at all times. House and car.
B) Dont let your young children play outside unsupervised.
Big thoughts go out to the families and the children.
Thank you to
for the pretty siggy!
