TODAY I DROVE THE CAR TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE CAR WAS ACCELERATING AND I WANTED TO STOP IT OTHER THAN PUTTING ON THE BRAKES AND HITTING THE PARK BUTTON. I WAS TRYING TO REPRODUCE THE CONDITIONS WHICH HAVE RESULTED IN NUMEROUS ACCIDENTS AND MORE THAN ONE LIFE. WHILE SLIGHTLY ACCELERATING I FIRST TRIED TO STOP THE CAR BY PRESSING THE POWER BUTTON. THIS DID NOTHING. I THEN PRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL ON THE LEFT SIDE WHICH IS YOUR HAND BRAKE, HARD UNTIL THE BRAKE LIGHT CAME ON AND THE ALARM SOUNDED. IN SPITE OF THIS THE CAR KEPT GOING! THE ONLY WAY I COULD STOP THE CAR WAS BY STOPPING THE CAR WITH THE FOOT BRAKE AND THEN PRESSING THE PARK BUTTON.
