Everyone who knows how a car works are aware, that a broken gas pedal during motion means the car was not going go anywhere; not faster, not maintaining speed or not even out of a driveway. It could also be dangerous if you in the middle of
a highway at highway speed.

A report from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that “If the accelerator pedal arm breaks, the engine will return to idle and the driver will be unable to maintain or increase engine speed, increasing the risk of a crash.” Here the NHTSA is informing the public of what can happen to a motorist’s vehicle accelerator pedal if it breaks off while the car is been driven, but offered no solution if such mist hap happen.

However, if you are driving ANY vehicle and the accelerator pedal happens to break off, here is a list of thingd you can do:
1. Don’t panic
2. Put the vehicle’s emergency flashers ON
3. Slow down and pull over as soon as possible
where it is safe.
4. Call 911 or you automobile emergency service
such as OnStar
5. Stay in vehicle if it is unsafe get out

A representative of the Aston Martin automaker informs that there are no reports of accidents or injuries related to the accelerator issue yet.
The recall of the Aston Martin models aside from the Vanquish, the Cygnet and some other specialty cars were all manufactured between 2007 and the end of 2013.
