We offer structured documentation creation and publication services both online using the latest technologies (see demo[^]) or embedded (see the doc inside the product of my signature). Since it is structured, you can "load and display" any part of the document when you need them, which is useful in building context sensitive help or in mobile viewing devices of today. A user can also build multiple languages document easily. However, it is not offered as free service ...
Just for your information since the lacking of proper technical documentation tools has also bothered us for a long time. And we created our own.

Dearest Auntie reports this[^] story about a French driver whose accelerator got stuck and he had no choice but to drive until he ran out of fuel.
I don't know for sure but isn't it possible that by turning the ignition key half-way you can cut the engine without the steering lock engaging? What was wrong with the handbrake? I thought all cars had to have an independent braking system which the handbrake is. Yes, pulling might have caused damage but surely it would have slowed the car down even if the brake pedal caused it to speed up?
Is it possible he was seeking attention for some reason? Maybe he didn't understand what was going on but something about it doesn't seem to sit right with me. Perhaps it really was a problem.

Handbrake most likely wouldnt do jack. Turning the ignition key half-way would work. You would lose power steering and power breaks (if the car had them) but would have still been easy enough to get it stopped.
You cannot argue with agile people so just take the extreme approach and shoot him.
I have to say I agree ( although when did Sky News becomes anyone dearest Auntie ?? ). Depending on how modified his Laguna was and how disabled he is the fuse box on those cars is driver reachable, under the dashboard, pull that open and you can easily reset all the electronics on the car in a few seconds, not only would it probably stop but even if it didn't the reset would almost certainly have fixed the error. The only possible way hitting the brake could have increased his speed is if he's got fly by wire secondary controls for disabled access and they've shorted out, pop one fuse and they're out of the loop.
