THIS IS THE "FOURTH INCIDENT," THIRD CLAIM. PRIOR CLAIM ODI ID#'S ARE: 10438034 AND 10439310. THE LATEST INCIDENT OCCURRED ON 1/14/12 (12/59PM), 2 MINUTES AFTER I STARTED ENGINE (COLD) IN MY DRIVEWAY AND AS I APPROACHED THE STOP SIGN AT 175 FROM MY DRIVEWAY. I WAS COMING TO AN ALMOST COMPLETE STOP WITH MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND THE ENGINE ALMOST AT IDLE. THE ENGINE SUDDENLY STARTED TO RACE AND THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO SURGE FORWARD. SINCE MY FOOT WAS ALREADY ON THE BRAKE, I WAS ABLE TO PRESS HARD TO KEEP IT FROM CONTINUING FORWARD AND I IMMEDIATELY SHIFTED INTO NEUTRAL. THE RACING STOPPED AND THE ENGINE IDLED. AT THE SAME TIME A BICYCLIST CROSSED MY BATH AND WOULD HAVE BEEN RUN OVER HAD I NOT REACTED SO QUICKLY.
