After seeing that news story were 4 people died because the gas pedal got stuck under the carpet, I was wondering why the hell the guy called 911 instead of... um... trying to stop the car? I saw it being reported many times and not once did I hear anyone say what could've been done to stop the car. Wouldn't you just be able to turn the key and shut the engine off? Why not just press down on the brakes slowly at first, then all the way? Even the handbrake would be a better alternative to ploughing through an intersection at over 100mph. Asking the passenger to go yank on the gas pedal?
