Stuck in reverse

I have a hard time trying to understand what “stuck in reverse” means. I often hear that but in my language its translation doesn’t make sense so could you help me understand when English speakers use that and what to say? Thank you! Alex

“Stuck in reverse” means that the gear in your car is jammed, locked or blocked in the reverse position (in retromarcia), and so your car is going backwards and there’s nothing that you can do about it. This expression can also be used figuratively.
