Transportation secretary Ray LaHood

Is it just me, or is this guy making out the gas pedal thing to be a way bigger deal than it needs to be?

I like the advise on how to handle a stuck gas pedal, just don't drive it :

Quote:
Rep. Tom Latham, R-Iowa, had asked if the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration should broadcast information about how to handle a sticky gas pedal -- whether the driver should shift into neutral, brake or turn off the car.
LaHood said that safety information has been publicized, but his own advice would be to not drive the recalled cars at all.
This is from a longer story here: http://money.cnn.com/2010/02/03/news...toyota_lahood/

"we didnt have a recall THIS week....." lol

just saw this.....


WASHINGTON – Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood now says he misspoke when telling owners of recalled Toyotas to stop driving then.
Instead, LaHood says take them to dealerships to get them repaired.
LaHood told reporters it was "obviously a misstatement" when he told a House panel earlier Wednesday that he would advise owners not to drive recalled vehicles. The remark came during testimony to the Appropriations subcommittee on transportation.
Toyota's most recent recall in the United States affects 2.3 million vehicles with the potential for sticking gas pedals.
