Such an accident has taken place several times in different countries of the world and it has been either due to malfunctioning of the automatic gear system or from children shifting the gear. A little precaution on the part of the driver could stop repeat of such unhappy incidents.

I'm sure there is a kid in the driver seat. Qatar must implement the rules of restraining children and be strict on it. Children now a days is curious and very smart. You can't blame the kids for our carelessness .
