Posted in: Police suspect human error in fatal car crash in Tokyo See in context

More victims of the right foot braking method we are all forced to use. 19 pedestrians and cyclists die in the US each day because of it. Would not have happened if the driver had been trained with the Left Foot Braking Method. This was a Type 2 right foot pedal error. (Vehicle may be in the forward or reverse mode. Driver needs to slow or stop. Driver attempts to move the right foot from the gas pedal to the brake pedal. Right foot ends up on the gas pedal. Driver is convinced right foot is on the brake pedal and pushes harder. Crash. This error may occur over many seconds and significant distances. In most cases the driver will not initially understand what went wrong.)

This was probably a Type 2 right foot pedal error. (Vehicle may be in the forward or reverse mode. Driver needs to slow or stop. Driver attempts to move the right foot from the gas pedal to the brake pedal. Right foot ends up on the gas pedal. Driver is convinced right foot is on the brake pedal and pushes harder. Crash. This error may occur over many seconds and significant distances. In most cases the driver will not initially understand what went wrong.) Happens to drivers of ALL ages and gender. It is the curse of the 'Killer' right foot braking method that we are all forced to use when braking an electric or automatic car. Responsible for 19 deaths each day in the US. NHTSA knows all about it but refuses to test it against the safer Left Foot Braking Method because 'real men brake with their right foot'!
