BTW anyone know what is behind the stuck accelerator problem with Toyota?
The floor mats get stuck holding the accelerator down and when this happens
people seem to stop thinking and just don't figure out how to either turn
the engine off or put the car in neutral
There is a 911 call out there from a South California Trooper who drove
himself and his family off the road killing all in the car and maybe others.
The car was doing 100 mph or more when he crashed. He was driving a new
Lexus ES330 loaner. This car may not have had an ignition key but why he
didn't think to just try putting the car in neutral is beyond me. The call
is chilling and went on for long enough that he should have figured out what
was going on.
