I am sick and tired of waking up in the morning, and seeing on the front page at FoxNews.com, another "runaway" Toyota driver saved by a third party. This morning, it was a CHiPs officer "saving" a runaway Prius.
I would like to make a suggestion. Now, this may seem like common sense; mostly BECAUSE IT IS!!!
I want you to remember this, and repetition is the best way for your "training" to take hold, so maybe practice it while driving. Are you ready?
IF YOUR CAR WON'T SLOW DOWN, TURN OFF THE IGNITION!!!!!!
Yes, it really is that simple. If the engine is racing; whatever the cause*, if you turn the engine off, it won't be able to race.
*The one exception is a runaway diesel. A runaway diesel has an external source of fuel, and cannot be turned off by shutting off the ignition.
