    Nothing at all, always leave the car in gear anyway.

    Well, I never park the car in gear. The only thing I do out of habit, is when applying the handbrake, holding the car on the brakes - mainly because my driveway slopes and as I pull the lever, push a touch harder. It's now a habit and do the same no matter what the ground level.

    The car's never tried to run away wherever I've left it.

    So far, touch wood!!
