If your accelerator (gas pedal) is stuck, what should you do?

Correct answer

  • Shift into neutral.
  • Keep driving until you run out of gas.
  • Brake hard.


If your gas pedal is stuck, DON'T PANIC. Try to lift the gas pedal with your foot. If that fails, shift into neutral to cut power to the drive wheels. Then brake to slow down, and pull off the road.
