My NYPost piece on "sudden acceleration" as an American phenomenon

By Michael Fumento

"No other country in the world has comparable problems with cars accelerating on their own," observes one of Germany's top magazines, Der Spiegel - yet "the same cars exist around the world, but no accidents of this type have occurred anywhere outside of North America. There were also cases of stuck Toyota gas pedals in Germany. The drivers braked successfully, and notified their car dealerships. None of them met their deaths."

Indeed, sudden acceleration appears to be a form of American hypochondria - not just on Toyotas. The data show it, the question is why? Learn about it in my New York Post piece today, "Toyota Hysteria: Real Stories Are about Us."
