* Used in ''MetalSlug 2'' and ''X'' (its remake) during the train level where some enemies in motorboats fire missiles at you. Even if you kill the driver, they just slump over on the controls and the attack persists. It isn't until you destroy the boat you get em off your back.

* Played with in ''LethalWeapon''. [=McAllister=] and his driver escape in a car through an alley, only for the driver to be shot dead by Murtagh. [=McAllister=] desperately attempts to take the wheel, but is thwarted when the car is hit by a bus and ultimately destroyed by a live grenade in the back seat. * ''NewPoliceStory'' had a driver that, when killed, not only slammed on the gas but certainly swerved to maximize damage and drama. * It's not detailed whether he died or not, but in ''{{Salt}}'' Evelyn repeatedly tasers a driver to achieve this same effect.

* ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad''. Max uses the grossly obese People Eater for this after he's shot, who incidentally has an overly-large mutated foot which comes in handy for this trope.
