      Research and Rulemaking efforts are underway to update Highway safety book NCAP program to accommodate emerging vehicle safety technologies. Several examples are given of persons accidentally being run over, or cars that turned into runaways because the driver operating the vehicle at the time of the accident was not familiar with its shift pattern and would shift into reverse when intending to shift to park.
