"NHTSA has been able to verify only one of those fatal crashes was caused by a problem with the vehicle, according to information the agency provided to the National Academy of Sciences. That accident last Aug. 28, which killed a California highway patrolman and three passengers in a Lexus, was traced to a floor mat that trapped the gas pedal in the depressed position."Guess what. My floor mats sometimes get shoved out of place and interfere with the brake pedal and accelerator pedal. I move the floor mats back into place. Ah, duh.
Someone please tell us again why we should believe that the onslaught against Toyota has been anything except a government engineered assist to GM. Regulators and regulations continue to fail, and they do it on your dime (oops, sorry; it's your trillions of dollars in taxes).
