Toyota Brake Override for all vehicles with Electronic Throttle sign now

We the undersigned request that Toyota develop and deploy 'Brake Override' systems for all Toyota and Lexus vehicles sold in North America that have a 'drive by wire' electronic throttle system.

Toyota has announced that it is implementing Brake Override systems on all new Toyota models world-wide as well as on new production of existing models by the end of 2010. Further Toyota has announced that it is including a Brake Override update for many vehicles involved in the current recall campaigns.

However there are still millions of Toyotas including Camrys (pre-2007), Sienna minivans, Corollas, Highlanders, Rav4's Tundras and many other Toyota, Lexus and Scion models with electronic throttles for which Toyota has not announced plans to include in Brake Override updates.

Brake Override systems protect drivers, their family and other all motorists who share the road with electronic-throttle-equipped vehicles from a wide range of problems including gas and brake pedal obstruction from floormats, water bottles or other objects, driver pedal confusion (if they press both) and other driver faults as well as most potential mechanical and electronic failures and malfunctions.

Toyota's senior-most leadership, Mr. Akio Toyoda, President of Toyota, and Mr, Jim Lentz, President and COO of Toyota Motor Sales (North America) are both on record as affirming Toyota's commitment to safety and to ensuring that Toyota owners "feel safe when they use our vehicles" (Toyoda) and "have complete confidence in the vehicles they drive" (Lentz). We the undersigned are telling Toyota that the best and in fact the only way we will feel completely safe and confident in a Toyota with a Drive-by-Wire Electronic throttle system is with a Brake Override System in place.

Toyota obviously sees the value of Brake Override Systems and is doing the right thing for future owners and certain current owners. We are calling on Toyota to do the same right thing for ALL Toyota/Lexus/Scion owners, the people who have already placed their trust in Toyota, by immediately committing to develop and voluntarily implement Brake Override Systems for all models and for all model years with drive-by-wire electronic throttle systems.
