I WAS LEAVING A PARKING LOT AND WAS GOING TO ENTER A ROAD. I WAS COASTING THROUGH THE PARKING LOT AT ABOUT 10 MPH BECAUSE I HAD TO STOP BEFORE ENTERING THE CROSS ROAD. WHEN I STEPPED ON THE BRAKE TO STOP, THE CAR STARTED TO ACCELERATE. I PRESSED ON THE BRAKE HARD AND IT SOUNDED LIKE THE ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM KICKED IN WHILE THE ENGINE REVVED UP AND KEPT PUSHING THE CAR. THE ACCELERATION PUSHED ME INTO THE CROSS ROAD WHILE THE BRAKING SYSTEM WAS MAKING LOTS OF NOISE,. LUCKILY NO ONE WAS IN THE CROSS ROAD AT THAT TIME. I PUT THE CAR INTO NEUTRAL, WHILE MY FOOT WAS STILL ON THE BREAK, AND THE ENGINE RPM'S DROPPED DOWN TO IDLE. I THEN PUT THE CAR INTO REVERSE ( BECAUSE CARS WERE NOW COMING ON THE ROAD I WANTED TO ENTER). AND I BACKED UP NORMALLY ( NO MORE ENGINE REVVING) . I PUT THE CAR BACK INTO DRIVE AND EVERYTHING ACTED NORMAL. IT WAS VERY SCARY, BECAUSE IF CARS WERE CROSSING IN FRONT OF ME WHEN IT HAPPENED, I WOULD HAVE GONE INTO THE ROADWAY UNABLE TO STOP AND I WOULD HAVE HIT SOME ONE.
