With all the stories of Toyotas accelerating out of control in the US, the question that always comes to my mind is "Why don't they put the car in neutral?"
I finally have the answer. This person thought that his car would flip over if he switched into neutral.
On the other hand, I wouldn't want to be in a rental car and try to figure this one out while my car is going out of control:
The whole thing reminds me of the mess around Audi back in the 80s when people were turn them on with the accelerator floored (instead of the brake) and flying out of their garage.
