Perhaps they should have put the wood block on top of the pedal, five year old short legs.....

Pretty weird. I hadn't thought about the potential for a kid taking off in an electric car at an auto show. I had expected a kid to eventually lock himself inside a Tesla, however, having watched people fool around with the displays at the shows.

Why didn't anybody stop the kid? Nobody heard him start the car!

Nissan leaf makes some fake engine sounds at maneuvering speeds to prevent parking accidents. Maybe all these cars maneuvering or being ready to go should use some kind of warning sounds.

Our local fire brigade had an open day a while back. Couple of kids got into the truck and managed to run it across the road and down a steep bank, several hundred metres into an apple orchard.

Ahhh, those beeping backing up noises like dump trucks make. . . .

The jetsons would be much better.
