even the four-way hazards should trip the computer into resetting the throttle algorithm.
Whoa... lots of idiots turn on hazards while moving, in the middle of a highway. I saw this in Virginia during snowstorms.
Not saying it's right or good, it just happens a lot.
Holy Crap nardo don't come up to Canada and drive stay south of the friggin' border please! Suppose you are in a situation where you come around a corner and you have a white out crossing the road and you know there is a large 18 wheeler only 300-400 yards behind you. When you hit the white out on the corner you need to slow down to squat mph to see where the hell you are going and your tail lights will dissappear. WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? ONE: immediately hit the ditch, TWO: Stop in the middle of the road and get out to see where the ditch is. THREE: Speed up lose control as your wheels hit the ditch and flip your car and kill your wife and kids. FOUR: Slow down, carefully watch for the sholder of the road and increase the luminosity of your tail lights by pumping the brake lights to warn the semi. FIVE: Slow down, watch the edge of the road carefully and turn on your flashers to warn the semi that you have slowed down due to visibility difficulties.
Chances are if you are a moron who is not accustomed to driving according to the conditions you will just wind up going in the ditch at 70 miles an hour, or worse getting rear ended by the semi!
