planted driver error story?
Reports that driver error was the
cause of the vast majority of Toyota's accelerator problems
have been dismissed by a key government agency as "planted".
Widespread speculation has centred on initial findings from the US
Department of Transportation (DOT),
of which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is
part, that drivers have been to blame
for the unintended acceleration by pressing wrong pedals.
However, the NHTSA, the body responsible for examining the Toyota pedal
problems in the US,
has firmly rebutted claims the story came from the safety organisation.
"That story was planted by Toyota," an NHTSA spokeswoman in Washington
"Toyota is the source - yes we know that for definite.
"It is the Toyota PR machine. We knew they were going to put it out."
I have a theory and I'd bet money
I'll bet the NHTSA has concluded that driver error cause the majority
of those "accidents"
but the government has refused to release those findings so Toyota, out
of frustration, did.
I don't know why our government is
trying to hang Toyota, but it seems clear they are.
Their language is obviously adversarial - why does it need to be?
Why can't our government just list

Is it their intention to drag this out as long as possible?

that's been sitting in their lab since 2006?
