I hate how the news isn't calling her out on her bullshit.

They're all like, "Wow, we fell for it, better not air it to show how stupid we are."

Well if she were on trial, that info would probably be thrown out. But seeing that it's just a BMW forum, that's quite entertainingly useful!

So this is how you get away from a speeding ticket...
Call 911 and claim your pedals stuck.

I'm so pissed Darwin had a day off the day this happened. Now we're stuck listening to all this BS. The only people dumber than this lady are the people on the Today Show who are not calling her bluff and not asking "Hey, how do you turn off the car in your driveway? Well did you try that?"

For crying out loud, hit the button, hit the brake, bounce it off the g@dd@mn guardrail, do ANYTHING except calling your husband!!!

No key - push button start.


Just a sidenote: For those of you saying she should hit the "emergency brake" which is what everyone for some reason calls the parking brake....... have any of you ever done that while a car is in motion? You have no idea what happens do you?

I know what happens, but do you? The way you said it makes me wonder if you do. Educate the masses....

I don't particularly agree with their comment to use the emergency brake, but probably for different reasons than you do.

An elderly man, who is 100 years old, lost control of his car and ran over a bunch of elementary school students... so naturally he claims his brakes failed.
