What To Do If Your Car Or Truck Accelerates Out Of Control

Any and every car or truck can have issues with acceleration. Do you know what to do if your car or truck accelerates out of control? In my investigation of what to do I found a very good video from Consumer Reports that I think will teach you all the necessary measures to make if this were to happen. It’s probably a good video to show your teen drivers as well.

Here’s a quick list of tips to try when your car or truck is accelerating out of control:

(1) Don’t slam on the brakes but instead try pumping the brakes firmly.

(2) Put the car into neutral and pump the brakes firmly.

(3)  Steer to a safe location and try your best to come to a complete stop.

(4) Finally turn the ignition off and take the keys out. Do not attempt to drive this vehicle again until you find the source of the problem and it is fixed.

Safe Driving Out There!
