Sudden Unintended Acceleration: Are you prepared for it?

If Sudden Unintended Acceleration — like my son had to face — is a possibility for any car or driver, then we need to be better prepared for such an eventuality.

Some links to consider:

Here is a 2016 patent for a Throttle valve for preventing sudden unintended acceleration https://www.google.com/patents/US9322338

Are automotive companies making use of such a thing? Should they be?

Should an owner of a Toyota Camry be worried about a repeat episode of SUA?

So, if you own a Toyota Camry and you had a problem with sudden unintended acceleration, should you be worried that it might happen again–even though you paid $1,300 to have it repaired?

No recall listed for that problem for a 1996 Toyota Camry. . .
