Hair Balls: Toyota to reshape pedals in effort to curb "sudden acceleration" errors

VILLAGE VOICE HOUSTON mocks Toyota for its recent announcement that pedals on some vehicles would be reshaped in response to recent reports of "sudden acceleration" (caused most frequently by drivers stomping the wrong pedal).

The publication ran a story on the same topic earlier this year, neglecting to identify the wife of a Village Voice staffer as such. She apparently had an arbitration claim against Toyota at the time due to her "sudden acceleration" incident, but we have not seen an update from Village Voice whether their consumer-advocacy journalism helped produce a favorable outcome for her.
