Even though I'm completely aware that I myself jumped the switch, there have been a couple of times that for whatever reason the shifter was not in park and I started it in gear. I of course was able to stop the car immediately and not run over anybody or crash.

Haven't thought about this in many years, but back in the 80's I converted my 6 cylinder 3 on the tree '69 Nova to a 350 small block Chevy with automatic transmission. Did not have a park/neutral switch at 1st and it would start in gear. Did wire up a switch, especially since my wife would drive the car. Too many possibilities of what could happen. She drives this wagon as well, but out of habit her foot is always on the brake at startup. Gotta get it fixed.
