Recalled Toyotas A National Emergency?

Ray LaHood which is the U.S. Transportation Secretary spoke at a congressional hearing, Wednesday, stating that people should complete stop driving Toyotas that have been involved with the massive recall.

“My advice is, if anybody owns one of these vehicles, stop driving it, take it to the Toyota dealer because they believe they have the fix for it,” said LaHood.

“We need to fix the problem so people don’t have to worry about disengaging the engine or slamming the brakes on or put it in neutral.”

Shares in Japan fell over seven percent due to the recalled toyotas, which is now at $76.62 U.S.  There has been over 2.5million recalled toyotas in the United States and Canada, over the issue about the sticky accelerator.

LaHood also stated he wants to talk to the Toyota automaker about their response to customer complaints.

“We’re not finished with Toyota,” LaHood said in an email to Reuters.

Also, in other news, United States safety are reviewing the electronic throttle system as a possible cause to the sudden acceleration connected to the recalled toyotas.

Toyota has already ruled out electronics as a cause of sudden acceleration by its cars. Millions of Toyota cars have been recalled internationally because of sticky gas pedals.

Also, the United States Government will be considering civil penalties the Japanese automaker, for its handling on this crisis involving the recalled toyotas.

Suggestions have been made that Toyota may not be doing all it can to resolve the accelerator pedal problems.
