This example binds the "p" key to a function to freeze/unfreeze the player's current vehicle.

-- this function freezes or unfreezes the specified player's vehicle, if he's in one
function toggleFreezeStatus ( thePlayer )
	-- if he is in a vehicle,
	if isPlayerInVehicle ( thePlayer ) then
		-- get the vehicle element
		local playerVehicle = getPlayerOccupiedVehicle ( thePlayer )
		-- get the current freeze status
		local currentFreezeStatus = isVehicleFrozen ( playerVehicle )
		-- get the new freeze status (the opposite of the previous)
		local newFreezeStatus = not currentFreezeStatus
		-- set the new freeze status
		setVehicleFrozen ( playerVehicle, newFreezeStatus )

-- now make this function available as key bind to all players.
-- first, get the list of players
local connectedPlayers = getElementsByType ( "player" )
-- for each one in it,
for i, aPlayer in ipairs(connectedPlayers) do
	-- bind the player's "p" key to the toggleFreezeStatus function
	bindKey ( aPlayer, "p", "down", "Toggle freeze status", toggleFreezeStatus )
