Drive by wire failure results in wide open throttle. Can't shut the engine off. Electronic transmission will not respond. Brakes won't be able to do much in the long run...

Later they had to reprogram the car to have the transmission downshift and the start button to shut the engine off. Nothing here to see. Nope. Must have been the floor mats!



This is all false. Brakes will 100% stop a car "stuck" at WOT. It WILL allow you to shift to neutral and you can turn it off. Those deaths were all people too lazy to read the damn manual.
