I always thought it was due to people having to
slam train doors but even young people do it that
have never been near a train and any way they are
now mostly automatic, I used to have a VW that when
the doors were slammed the air pressure hurt your ears
and the doors only went on the first catch, but just
push it cosed with 1 finger and it shut perfectly with
a click, I still make a grab for the passenger door when
people get out to lessen the shock.
Must be something they are born with.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
