Transportation Secretary Tells Owners of Recalled Toyotas to Stop Driving Them ... Accidentally

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood 'did not mean' to tell drivers of Toyotas with the faulty peddles to stop driving them. I am not sure which way is better. If you are experiencing problems with your driving peddles you should pull your car over and call someone. If not, there may not be a rush, but you should still get the piece swapped out to ensure you do not experience a problem later.

"Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood now says he misspoke when telling owners of recalled Toyotas to stop driving then.

Instead, LaHood says take them to dealerships to get them repaired.

LaHood told reporters it was "obviously a misstatement" when he told a House panel earlier Wednesday that he would advise owners not to drive recalled vehicles. The remark came during testimony to the Appropriations subcommittee on transportation.

"What I said in there, or what I thought I said was, 'if you own one of these cars, or if you're in doubt, take it to the dealer,'" LaHood said.

LaHood initially said an owner of a recalled model should "stop driving it. Take it to a Toyota dealer because they believe they have a fix for it."
