I WAS ENTERING AN ON-RAMP ONTO THE INTERSTATE AND ACCELERATING AT THE TIME. AS I WAS NEARING THE END OF THE RAMP, I FELT THE TRUCK WAS TRAVELING FASTER THAN I HAD INTENDED. I REMOVED MY FOOT OFF OF THE ACCELERATOR ONLY TO HEAR THE ENGINE REVVING AND WATCHED THE SPEEDOMETER CONTINUE TO CLIMB. I WAS TRAVELING BETWEEN 80-85 MPH BY THE TIME I WAS ENTERING THE INTERSTATE APPROACHING A TRACTOR TRAILER TRUCK. I STOOD WITH BOTH FEET, STRAIGHT LEGGED WITH 130 POUNDS ON THE BRAKE WHILE NOT ONLY TRYING TO AVOID THE TRACTOR TRAILER IN FRONT OF ME, BUT WATCHING ANOTHER TRACTOR TRAILER APPROACHING ME FROM BEHIND. MY SPEED CONTINUED TO CLIMB AS THE ACCELERATOR REMAINED STUCK. AFTER APPROXIMATELY HALF A MILE OF ME STANDING ON THE BRAKE, I HEARD A LOUD BANG AS THE ACCELERATOR LET GO AND MY BRAKING TOOK EFFECT. I TOOK IT TO THE CLOSEST FORD DEALERSHIP WHO "COULD NOT DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM, THE PEDDLE MUST HAVE BEEN STUCK ON THE FLOORMAT". AS I WAS NOT SATISFIED, I THEN TOOK IT TO THE DEALERSHIP WHERE I HAD PURCHASED IT ONLY TO BE TOLD THE SAME THING. AS THE PERSON DRIVING THE VEHICLE, I CAN ASSURE YOU, IT WASN'T STUCK ON THE FLOORMAT. THE SAME THING OCCURRED TO MY HUSBAND AS HE ACCELERATED TO PASS A VEHICLE. HOWEVER, THE PERIOD OF ACCELERATION DID NOT LAST AS LONG AS THIS LAST EPISODE. BOTH DEALERSHIPS WERE MADE WELL AWARE OF BOTH INCIDENTS.
