27, You only need your foot on the clutch if the car is a stick shift. If the car is automatic then all you need to shift gears is have your foot on the break and it's obvious that's what happened.

In some places there are rules for this. In Australia, there are restrictions on children under the age of seven being in a front passenger seat.

The problem with backwards baby seats in the front is if the airbags go off, it can hit the seat and kill the kid. The Australian rule is kids under 4 can't be in the front if the car has back seats, and 4-7 can't be in the front if there are any back seats without kids under 7 already in them. They all have to use capsules, baby seats or boosters depending on their age.

Even so. Gear shifts are placed where the driver can easily get to them. My truck (manual) and car (automatic) had them in the same place. I can't imagine anyone could move them without the driver's notice unless that driver was completely absorbed in something else. OP, YDI.

Maybe she was too busy focusing on not getting in to an accident while in a traffic jam, and the kid unhooked his seat belt? Or maybe he was sitting in the front and just wanted to be an asshole? Kids like to be assholes sometimes, no matter how well you raise them.

You have got to be one of the dumbest comments I've seen. Legit, you can change gears quick if it's a short throw and the driver not even know. Granted that the OP shoulda checked they were in 1st before setting off, still... an if the son was leaning from the backseat, he obviously knew what he was doing and was old enough to know what'd happen. You fail, not OP.
