WHILE DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY, I NOTICED MY CAR ACCELERATE A LITTLE ON ITS OWN. IT ALARMED ME BUT I IGNORED IT, THINKING I MAY HAVE BEEN ON A SLIGHT DOWNGRADE. A MONTH LATER, WHILE DRIVING OVER A MOUNTAIN UPHILL, MY CAR ACCELERATED ON ITS OWN AND I COULD NOT IGNORE THAT. I PRESSED THE BRAKE BUT THE ENGINE KEPT TRYING TO MOVE FASTER. THE ROAD FLATTENED OUT AND I SAW A STOP SIGN. LUCKILY THERE WAS NO ONE IN FRONT OF ME BECAUSE I COULD NOT STOP WITHOUT HAVING TO FLOOR THE BRAKES AND PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL. AS I DID THAT, THE RPMS WENT UP TO 5000. I TRIED TURNING THE CAR OFF AND ON, AND AS IT TURNED BACK ON THE ENGINE REVVED UP TO 6000 AND WOULD NOT GO DOWN AFTER SHIFTING INTO NEUTRAL. I TURNED OFF THE CAR AND HAD IT TOWED BECAUSE I WAS TOO FRIGHTENED TO CONTINUE DRIVING IT ON A NARROW, WINDY ROAD.
