All Future Toyotas Will Have Override System To Cut Engine Power

According to Reuters, Toyota announced today that it would add a brake-override system to all future cars. The system would cut power from the engine when the accelerator and brake pedals are applied at the same time.

The company also said it plans to form a “Special Committee for Global Quality” that would ostensibly prevent a repeat of the bazillion million car recall spectacular.

The president of the company, Akio Toyoda, will head the taskforce.
