If it did happen, you should be able to stop the car by turning off
the ignition and applying the brakes.
Nah, in many cases it occurs just at the time when other faults
coincidentally happen with the brakes, ignition switch and gear selector...
Or very convenient, depending on one's viewpoint.
Trains have a variety of fancy ways of applying the brakes these
days, involving electrical signals and remotely controlled valves.
However, just in case they also have a mechanical valve in the cabs
which, when operated, will apply the brakes and bring the train to a
stand. Often in the form of a button/plunger to be pushed down. Only
for use in an emergency, but a sensible precaution.
