Runaway Cars, huh?

Okay I heard this story on the radio yesterday and don't care to make an example of itself, but merely to reinforce a more general point.

How in the world do you get a "runaway" vehicle on anything other than a hill? Can't anyone manage to TURN THE IGNITION OFF?! WTF?

The ultimate brain fart - car has no breaks or the gas pedal gets "stuck" (under their FOOT mashed to the floor?) and they suddenly lose all general knowledge of automobile operation at that moment?

Or maybe putting it in NEUTRAL and let it coast to a stop, possibly driving down the side of the road until it rolls to a stop?

And then maybe use the EMERGENCY BRAKE? That long handle thingy with the button on the end? All you have to do is press and hold the button and pull UP! WTF?

And the government is worried about people carrying GUNS?! I am more likely to get killed going outside into the parking lot and being hit by a moron in a vehicle than being shot, even better chances if there are old people nearby.
