Safety Expert Says New Fix Still Won’t End Runaway Cars
New Toyota accelerator pedals have passed tests for problems and are being shipped this week, according to the supplier, CTS of Elkhart, Indiana.
Toyota has recalled more than two million cars and stopped sales and production because of “sticky” accelerator pedals that could cause cars to race out of control.

The geriatric dust-up happened at 2:10 p.m. Monday across the street from Maimonides Hospital in Borough Park, when Gersh Gofman, 83, of Sheepshead Bay, pulled his car in front of the driveway outside Steve Pulwers’ house.
Pulwers, who’s just two months shy of 100 and lives above a doctor’s office, said he was putting out the trash and knocked on Gofman’s window when the doctor returned for an emergency call and couldn’t get into the driveway.
