"What do you mean by "emergency reverse"?
An evasive backing away in a hurry. At a truck stop early in the morning I was following a semi in. The semi stopped and then backed up (couldn't see me) I shifted 2 clicks (normally neutral + reverse) the car was in neutral since I had the selector in L. The time it took me to realize I was not in reverse (tired, early in the morning) allowed the truck to back into me before I could place the car in reverse and back away. This happened to a beater I had been driving in low due to get home with a weak transmission.
It's a lot like flipping a light switch on when entering a dark room when the power is out. A habit from years of conditioned behavior.
