How To Stop A Toyota

Have a Toyota? Then you might want to figure out how you stop the darn thing in case your accelerator pedal gets stuck. It’s pretty simple, so check out the video below for CNN's tips on what to do in the rare event, regardless of which kind of vehicle you drive.

Better yet — just go get it fixed, and fast.

Editor's Note: A number of readers have contacted IMPO to say that if one turns off the engine while it is in operation, the vehicle will lose its power steering, which could lead to an accident itself. It seems the consensus is that going into neutral, along with steady, even braking, is the safest method to stop a car with a stuck accelerator.
