A Florida woman takes carpool to whole new depths in a good reminder to always check your car’s gear. Earlier this month, a woman forgot to shift her car into park while she ran back to her apartment for something she’d forgotten. The car rolled down the incline it was on and into a pool. Inside the vehicle were the woman’s husband and daughter, who escaped unscathed. Officers joked that she had redefined carpool, and we tend to agree.

Happily, only the car was damaged, but this incident serves as a good reminder to pay attention behind the wheel. There could have been much worse outcomes in this situation that could have led to injuries along with civil charges.
Negligence as a driver and a parent don’t exclusively require active choices. Forgetting to put a car into park while it is still on could have caused an accident with pedestrians, other vehicles, and even the passengers inside. If such a serious accident had occurred, the woman would have been held responsible for her carelessly failing to put her car in park.
