You would have to be living in a cave to not have heard about the Toyota vehicles that have been recalled over the sticking accelerator issue. The phenomenon had been dubbed "unintended acceleration" in the press.

I'm still not sure why people can't simply put the car in neutral and coast to the side of the road. If you worry about your car taking you on a high-speed jaunt against your will a new product called the Decelerator has been revealed.

The Decelerator is a brake override safety system that claims to work no matter the cause of the acceleration. The device reduces the RPM of a high-revving engine allowing the driver to retain control of steering and brakes. The maker also claims the system will not void your warranty and requires no cutting or splicing. A version is available for Toyota vehicle with electronic throttle control.
