I would seriously have to think twice about allowing any adult like that into my car in the first place. (or anywhere else where they could endanger my life for that matter).

Life is too short...laugh and enjoy it while you are able to

I concur, my understanding is that if the car is in gear and the clutch is not depressed, and the road speed is greater than 7KPH then nothing happens, unless the stop button is pressed 5 times in quick sucession, and even then it only cuts off the fuel pumps.... most of this has been said before in this thread.

Hope it helps.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?

I have tried this with the car out of gear and the engine does not stop until the car is almost at a standstill.
In any case most people haven't got a clue about starting or stopping the engine with a button
