Sudden Acceleration—What Is It?
Devastating cases appear in the news reporting occurrences of sudden acceleration in defective vehicles. Rapid acceleration in cars and pickup trucks becomes apparent when the vehicle's electronic system causes the throttle to open wide against the will of the driver. The driver cannot return the car to idle and cannot effectively use the brakes to control the defective vehicle.
Sudden acceleration causes a runaway, out-of-control vehicle that endangers not only the driver and occupants, but also other motorists and pedestrians who may get in its path. Hundreds of people, including drivers, passengers, and innocent bystanders including young children, have been killed or seriously injured by defective vehicles that have caused sudden acceleration accidents.
Often, the auto service department or the police investigating such accidents assume a driver error caused the unintended acceleration , not a vehicle defect. Toyota recently blamed floor mats, and then days later attributed the problem to sticky accelerator pedals, without addressing the electrical systems which control the engines.
