Phew!!! Scared myself....

on Sun Mar 12, 2017 10:51 pm
Well driving back from my son's rugby match this afternoon I gave it a little controlled welly onto the motorway. I often rotate the selector into sport to capture and hold the gears.

Once up to speed I then normally rotate it back into Standard Drive mode. However, I had already done this and ended up putting the car into neutral. Not realising it at the time and with revs all over the place I turned it one more click - into reverse!!!!

Luckily there is a safety override to stop idiots like me spreading a perfectly good gearbox over several postcodes......

But it's very off putting to have the reverse camera come on. I should like to apologise to the other motorway users who may have been surprised to see my reverse lights come on whilst doing motorway speeds......

I can see the headline now:

"Man crashes off motorway whilst playing with his knob!"

I would have sh*t myself.

Like the time i rested my hand a little too hard on the mercs gear knob and it went from 5th to 1st approaching some lights

Haven't done it again !!
