I came to the Cartalk forums to post this ridiculous story, not realizing there was a perfect category in which to list it.
Distracted, I did something really stupid this week on the way to work: I shifted into park while driving 60+ mph. I have a 1995 Honda Accord V6 with automatic transmission. From when I shifted into park, I heard constant clicking, until I pulled over and stopped. The shift lock system didn’t give me any other choice but to pull over, because it allowed me to shift into Park, but it did not allow me to shift back out of Park. So much for safety, as it appears that I beat the system! Once safely parked on the side of the road, I shifted back into Drive, and finished my commute.
This post is not so much as question, because I already found the answers I needed on a different forum website. I thought I’d share this story with you guys, because it’s not a scenario I’ve ever heard of happening before now.
