So the CEO of Toyota is insulted and demeaned by Detroit politicians who now literally own General Motors, and whose “star” witness is a woman who is brought to the congressional hearing by a trial lawyer who has filed a class action suit against Toyota. I smell barbecued rat.
I’m no automotive expert, but I listened to one on on the radio yesterday who sure sounded like he knew what he was talking about. He said the probability is about zero that the “runaway gas peddle” problems Toyota is accused of are the result of faulty electronics. The most likely cause, he said, is inattentive drivers who let floor mats get stuck over the top of the gas peddle.6:16 am on February 25, 2010 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
