fusillade762: I mean, who still calls that area "The Orient"?
Dafodude: That Camry looks old enough to have a direct accelerator cable and not an electronic fly-by-wire type setup. Probably poorly maintained. That's assuming he's telling the truth and didn't actually fat-foot the wrong pedal instead.Anyway, there's a reason you don't need to press the button on the shifter handle in that car to move it from "D" to "N" when the engine starts racing uncontrollably. Just slap it forward and bam, you're in neutral, and THEN you steer to safety and THEN shut off the ignition. And it says ALL of this in the friggin' owner's manual.If you're not ready to react to an equipment failure in your vehicle, you're not ready to be behind the wheel, regardless of your age.
Mugato: Eh, 70's not that elderly anymore. She's just a moron.
