So anyone driving a Toyota involved in an accident has a pretty darn good chance of claiming unintended acceleration or stuck pedal and no one is really going to be able to prove it otherwise.
Yea, this whole thing has essentially shown that Toyota has known about major problems with their vehicles for years, causing hundreds deaths and many more injuries, and have kept all the info private and not done a thing to fix it. Toyota has also been found out to have withheld rollover info on many of their SUVs that have caused injuries and deaths. Now that they've been found out and the courts are demanding they give the info up, they're probably getting rid of as much of it as they can before complying.
