MY 2015 Jaguar XJ , WHICH WAS IN PARK GEAR - WITH ENGINE RUNNING, STARTED ROLLING BACK ON THE DRIVEWAY IN A DANGEROUS AND UNEXPLAINED FASHION AND ALMOST HIT MY KIDS AND I. THERE WAS NO-ONE IN THE CAR, AND I WAS ABLE TO BRING THE CAR TO A STOP BY JUMPING IN AND SLAMMING THE BRAKES. THE CAR WAS ROLLING, NOT SLIDING.
