Ed Wallace noted (“Recall Scandal Reality,” April 12) that some car accidents appeared to be the result of mistakes by the drivers and not as a result of faulty ignition switches.
I remember coming to the same conclusion when people were dying from what was presumed to be stuck accelerators on their Toyota.
The simple solution on a Toyota was to shift to “neutral” or turn off the ignition. You can still steer or stop a car when the engine is not running.
I believe that some people died because they were indoctrinated to believe that there was nothing they could do.
Perhaps Wallace should be nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for exposing facts that other people missed through ignorance or incompetence.
