I've been a driver, as well as every other position on a vehicle in convoys and patrols in Afghanistan - one thing the Army taught me that was easy to remember is, when you're the driver, you drive - as long as the vehicle will go, the driver does not get out.
Of course, he thought the vehicle would not go, or so he said, but since that was due to his own panic and forgetting he put it out of gear with the brake on, to begin with, that's a poor excuse.
