Put your foot on the brake. Most/all newer cars have an interlock that keeps you from shifting from park to drive without your foot on the brake. Sometimes if you park the car on a hill, it will be difficult to move the shifter out of park. That's why some people use the emergency brake before putting the car into park when parking on a hill or incline (like a driveway)
