1) While Attempting To Stop I Noticed My Truck Accelerating. I Naturally Pressed Harder And Nearly Ran Through My Garage Door. On 5 Other Occasions Since I Have Come Very Close To Having Severe Accidents Experiencing Acceleration. Had I Not Been Conscious Of The Cause The Incidents Would Have Resulted In Serious Injury. 2) The Cause Discovered Was The Proximity And Height Of The Brake Pedal In Relation The Gas Pedal. Nearly 1/3 Of My Foot Can Be On The Brake Pedal, And Still Press The Gas Pedal At The Same Time. Unlike Other Vehicles, The Brake Pedal Does Not Stop Before Reaching The Plane Of The Gas Pedal. 3) On Numerous Occasions, Particularly In Having To Make Quick Stops My Foot Has Inadvertently Pressed Both The Brake And Gas Pedal. Realizing That The Resulting Acceleration Was Due To Improper Positioning Of The Pedals I Have Been Able To Recover But Not Without The Loss Of Precious Time. Someday I Fear That This Defect Will Result In A Costly And Severe Accident.*ak
