Toyota’s Runaway-Car Worries May Not Stop At Floor Mats


Why don't they just cut off the engine or shift into neutral? That?s what I ask myself every time I see a story about a “runaway” vehicle. The latest batch of such stories has been about Toyota and Lexus vehicles, and specifically about the floor mats catching the throttle pedal and not allowing it to spring back to the off position. Now the Los Angeles Times has a very interesting article about this situation, and speculation on the reasons drivers may not be able to easily react to a stuck throttle.

Please see full article below for more information.
