Complaint - Service Brakes

I OWN A 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS WHICH I BOUGHT IN AUGUST 2013. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS, APPROXIMATELY, 4-5 TIMES A WEEK, EVERY TIME I RUN OVER A ROAD BUMP OR PATH HOLE AT SLOWER SPEEDS (10-20 MPH), THE CAR ACCELERATES ITSELF. WHEN I SEE THE BUMP OR PATH HOLE, I PUSH THE BRAKE PEDAL TO TRY TO SLOW DOWN BUT IT ACCELERATES INSTEAD. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO ME SINCE I PURCHASE THE VEHICLE, THE MOST RECENT TIME THIS HAPPENED WAS TODAY, TUESDAY, JUNE 3, 2014. TODAY'S SURGE IN THE ACCELERATION WAS MORE THAN BEFORE. I IMMEDIATELY CALLED TOYOTA AND REPORTED THE INCIDENT. I UNDERSTAND THIS HAS BEEN AN ISSUE SINCE THIS CAR WAS RELEASED IN 2009-2010 AND MANY OTHER OWNERS REPORTED IT IN THE PAST. I AM CONCERNED FOR SAFETY REASONS, KINDLY HAVE TOYOTA ADDRESS THIS ISSUE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THANK YOU.
