Even an automatic can roll back a bit on a steep hill.

I love driving stick, but you just have to be careful on the hills...haha. Like I said, there are times where you're on a flat road and the car will still roll back cause your wheel is on a little hump or something so if there's someone close to you, you just have to be mindful. People are supposed to leave room behind you but it's up to you to not hit them. Like I said, if you have a witness in a situation like this, ICBC can rule 100% other guy's fault if he really was right up on your bumper or at least 50/50, but witness is key.

I've had situations before where I left half a car length to the person in front of me and they rolled back a whole car length. Thankfully there was no one behind me. That person I would say shouldn't have drove manual. He stalled on the hill and instead of doing what a sane person would do by stopping and using the e-brake and then starting the vehicle, he let it continue rolling while trying to crank his engine!

Also, automatics roll back too. Luckily for me, mine has the hill start assist.
