This is why you never... EVER... leave the keys in the ignition when you get out of the car.
yeah, my car doesn't open the backseat doors if the car is still on, and yes, i live in the US. anyway, the locking keys in the car...as far as i know, your car can't detect when you're in or out of the car, so it's like locking the doors while driving...which is a pretty safe thing to do.
Most newer cars won't lock with the button with the keys in the ignition and the door open. If the door is closed they still lock. If you don't use the button and manually lock the door or don't have power locks, it will lock with the door open and the keys in the ignition. Also, some cars don't auto lock when you hit a certain speed, like my mom's Nissan minivan or any car without power locks.
