KLG is a menace to the street (or the parking lots)

KLG and Hoda had a litany of complaints this morning about the way cars have changed unfavorably. Among their dislikes: keyless ignition, overly complicated gear shifts and temperamental buttons, all of which may have contributed to KLG's getting stuck in the parking lot of a Los Angeles grocery store this past weekend. 

Kathie Lee is admittedly not a great driver, so she mostly keeps off the roads. But sometimes, she's forced to get behind the wheel. Well, L.A. is a driving city.

First she was unable to put the car in reverse, and then she was unable to put the car in drive, much to what was probably the delight of the other motorists who were trapped in the lot as a result. It does sound like an exciting incident, though. Just like that movie "Drive," but with a twist.

"Be grateful that I don't drive around too much," she said. Well, the streets are safe, for now.
