In auto safety news, Toyota today announced that it would broaden a recall to fix potentially faulty accelerator pedals in various car models due to the potential for dangerous unintended acceleration caused by the pedal becoming stuck in a part-way down position or slowly returning to idle due to pedal wear. The recall applies to 2.3 million vehicles. This recall comes on top of a previous Toyota recall aimed at the potential for accelerator pedals to become stuck in floor mats, which applied to 4.2 million vehicles. The federal government had received a number of reports of runaway acceleration in Toyotas at the time of the first recall. Runaway acceleration due to design defects in automobiles poses a significant risk of injury or death from auto accidents.
