Ray LaHoodEay Lahood | UssPost:Before falling back on his word, “said Transport Minister Ray LaHood what many government officials are thinking but will not say:” My advice to every person who owns one of these cars stop driving, and I consider that the Toyota dealer because they think they have a solution. ”

He later modified his statement after the headings bright “Lahoud says Toyota to stop driving fixed” virus began to spread across the airwaves and the Internet.

What he now says he meant to say is that more than four million Toyota owners affected should bring their cars in the shop to have them fixed.

Of course, the Secretary of Transport would not say that millions of people who have no other way to travel – and all who rely on Toyota to go to work or school or Grandma – should their cars and wait for the fix. Unless, that is, has the ability to deliver secure car for those in need even Toyota dealers apply the hotfix.

Instead it is simply recommends that affected drivers to go to the dealer. If they choose to continue to drive without doing so, well, there is not much than can be done about it. He could not provide a package of incentives or save for the supply of cars – even American cars – to the owners of the affected Toyota.

Toyota issued a statement in the wake of comments by Lahoud, noting that the situation where Toyota has delayed the accelerator is “rare and usually does not occur suddenly.” When you do this, the company said, in a vehicle “can be controlled with the company, and the consistent application of the brakes.”

Clearly, unlike the Toyota speeding problem causing irreversible small. However, with prior knowledge of the problem may be serious, and people are waiting for the car’s engine is a proposal suspicious. It’s similar to asking a person to fly even if they know that some of the aircraft in the fleet of the airline to have a fatal defect that could potentially lead to injury or death – but was unlikely, therefore it must take their chances.

Lahoud said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will continue an investigation and developed by Toyota during the competition. But this is not going to help the people who said he should first stop driving of vehicles that may be fatal. They hope the “best” situation in which Toyota will pay the price, but not as high as those who lost their lives or limbs because of this defect.
