— Sikes has hired a law firm, though it has indicated he has no plans to sue Toyota;

I'm siding with the guy on this one because of Toyota's past on this. First they claimed on other models they couldn't duplicate the stuck pedals then an engineer replicated it exactly. I've heard the tape and the guy sounds confused and scared. I'm still trying to find any reason why he would make this up. The officier said he could smell the brakes being worn out and saw the guy literally standing on the pedals. What I saw today especially was a flat out hit job on this guy's character.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
I just heard on the news that the cars black box indicated the brakes were lightly applied over 200 times during the incident rather than smashing the brakes and keeping them applied. If that had been done cars engine cutoff would most likely engaged. The investigation stated that this system is working fine.
