"Sudden" or "uncontrolled" acceleration is caused by driver error, period. I’ve worked on this technology for years (for a US car company) and have no doubt about this. Neither had NHTSA, until Obama nationalized GM, turned it into Government Motors and decided to destroy GM’s primary competition – using fabricated ‘evidence’ and pure, lying propaganda.
This latest, obviously grossly, deliberate and unrealistic modification of the system in "question" by this pathetic "professor" (David Gilbert of Southern Illinois University) is nothing more than attempt to get his 15 minutes of fame.
In addition, it wouldn’t surprise me, given Gilbert is from Obama’s home state, that he was paid (or otherwise induced) by Obama to generate these obviously falsified results.
