 Description of the problemWhile driving with my infant son on the freeway, i felt the vehicle seeming to speed up involuntarily, i. E. Without putting my foot on the accelerator. I exited the freeway at the nearest off-ramp, looking for a place to pull over safely and inspect my vehicle. Having no place to pull over, i kept driving, by this time having to stomp on the brake to maintain a safe speed on the city street i was driving on. Upon coming to a red light and attempting to brake, the car accelerated, thus causing the brake to be ineffective. In order to avoid hitting the car stopped at the light in front of me i had my foot slammed on the foot brake, the emergency brake pulled and the car in park. Even with all of this, the car engine revved, the car lurched, smoked and make hideous noises before the light finally turned green and i put the car in drive and continued on. Finally, after continuing to drive with my foot depressing the brake pedal, i found a safe place to stop and was only able to stop the car from moving forward by shutting it off. Amazingly, no one was hurt, nothing was damaged and we walked away from the incident understandably shaken and confused. No attempt has yet been made to fix the vehicle. We consider ourselves to be extraordinarily lucky.
