Vehicles shouldn't shut off when traveling over certain speed

By Jim B.

We have a Taurus with a push button start.

We were driving down a busy freeway in the middle lane with our grandkids were in the back seat.  One threw a toy which hit the starter button dead on and shutoff the car.  Talk about pucker factor.  I realize this was a fluke shot by the kid.  But shouldn't you have to push the button twice when not in park or have some other confirmation mechanism?      

Thanks for your consideration.
