Default Instructional video on how to stop a runaway Toyota...

This fellow knew what to do to bring his car to a screeching halt.

Notice the technique used when the countdown timer gets to ~1:10...

I hear they might cut a hole in the floor so you can use your feet ,
and include a boat anchor you suposed to throw out. Maybe an airbag on
the front of the car would help, cheaper than a recall.

button

How to stop a Car if the accelerator sticks

1. apply constant pressure to the brake
2. set the transmission to neutral while

What the hell is an on off button??

Put the car in neutral, stop, easy as that?

We shouldnt need a video to show us where neutral is or how to use it.

Anyone with a manual transmision or anyone whos ever owned a manual
transmission would be MORE than familliar with this.

Too bad we're not like the europeans... they've seen the ways of
manual shifts for years and we're stuck on automatics... different
culture... then again gas is $2.50/L there too instead of $1

I think it'd be hilarious to put cameras in the cars of teenage girls
and watch them go down the road (note I didn't say "drive").

That'd make one helluva TV show.

"Neutral? What's that?"

We have Housewives of Orange County; how about a "Driving Around"
subversion of that?
