Yes, they do. Mine likes to prank me like that all the time. It's a little joke we share. I'll be sitting at the lights and the gear stick will sneak into third when I'm not looking. Then I stall and we both have a jolly good laugh. You got me again, Car!

I always thought honking was the universal signal for "Learn to drive, dickhead!" Huh. The things you learn.

If you go too far and pass the white line, you simply put it in reverse. That driver just forgot to shift it back to drive. **I can so picture this happening!

I had a friend who was driving, and his passenger put it in reverse while my friend wasn't watching. no one was behind them but. not the brightest...

I'm guessing that the driver wanted the 'neutralize' the gear so to start in first. I have no license so my knowledge is vague. However I do know that most cars has to start in first gear and work it's way up. Maybe the car had been riding in fifth gear and then the driver had to slow down, putting it in reverse as he stopped at the light instead of neutral?

I would think that is close to impossible . If you would try to change to reverse while the car is still going you will need a lot of strength (most likely you won´t be able to do it at all) and probably destroy your car.

I drive a Volkswagen 6 speed manual and I've noticed because of the shift pattern it would be possible to land in reverse while aiming for first. If it's a 5 speed than the guy is just an idiot.

I don't know that much about driving or cars, so can someone explain how OP could've seen that the car was in reverse just from looking at it from behind? Would really appreciate someone telling me... :^}

Exactly! Those lights are what I look for in a crowded parking lot-- to know which cars are leaving. (:

If you idle in reverse the back up lights are still on. How do you think people know when you're trying to back up before you actually try to?

They might have been over the white line then backed up and may have forgotten to put it back in drive. Or they might just like to put it in reverse at red lights. We may never know.
