The vehicle will not even go forward once it senses the driver's door is opened, as it automatically switches from Drive mode to Park immediately. Therefore, PP would not be engaged. I actually tested this inadvertently when I was backing in, and wanted to verify my ground position by opening the door.
I've already thought of a way to bypass this though. Just open the window all the way, crawl out, and I'm pretty sure the vehicle will just take off on its own, IF PP is on and in standby mode while it's stopped. If a small 300 g weight is attached to the steering wheel, it could literally keep going until it crashes or automatically stops. Who wants to test my theory?
