Just had to share with all of you. So greatful that yesterday turned out alright after a hair-raising car drive. We have an old mini-van (made in USA), that decided to accelerate on it's own as I headed down the highway to a neighboring town (on way to pick up a daugher's prescription). Numerous time I was able to use the brakes to slow it as I'd get close to the vehicle ahead of me. Soon the car picked up too much speed again. As I reached the edge of town, I tried again to get the car under control and realized, even with braking, the car would not come to a complete stop. Guardian angels did good. I quickly checked mirrors and was able to pull out the lane of traffic, off to a side road, still no one else in my way, and I roared into a D.Q. parking lot and jammed the shift lever into park! If case any of you ever have this happen, my dh says I could have just turned the ignition key off! (I didn't think of that).
