GM to Equip all Vehicles with Brake Override by 2012

Hot on the heels of the NHTSA’s announcement that they’re investigating 6.2 million GM vehicles for brake failures, GM has announced that they’re going to be fitting every vehicle to roll of their assembly lines with a brake override system.  Most recently talked about by Toyota, a brake override system gives priority to the brake pedal in whether to accelerate or decelerate a vehicle.  GM calls theirs a “smart pedal” and says they’ll have it in all of their vehicles by 2012.  At least someone’s learning from the whole Toyota debacle.
