Hyundai i20 2013 Key can be taken out of the ignition while in still in 'drive'?

Asked by Aug 10, 2019 at 07:47 PM about the 2010 Hyundai i20

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Had an accident the other day when I turned my i20 off,
removed the key from the ignition and stepped out.
Realizing in the next two seconds that I had
uncharacteristically overlooked putting the car in Parking.
On a slope, the car started to go downhill. Thankfully, there
were no damages.

What I want to know is whether this is a freaky issue with
my second hand car or is it common for the model? This is
my first Hyundai so wondering.

I know you can't take the key out of the ignition if the car is
not in P. That goes for Toyotas or Hondas or BMWs, or any
other car I've driven before. Any thoughts?
