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.
