I learned today that the accelerator and the brake pedal are very close together. This is how I realized: I was slowing for a large speed bump in a parking lot, when the truck suddenly surged forward and jumped the speed bump, much to my chagrin. I realized that when I pivoted my foot from the gas to the brake, and then pressed the brake, my foot also partially covered the accelerator. Has anybody else experienced this I think this is a serious safety concern with the Av. If I pick my foot up off the floor and move it to the brake, this does not happen. But when I simply pivot my foot and leave my heel in the same place, I wind up with my foot on both pedals at the same time. I have big feet (size 13), but so do alot of people. In my 99 Mustang, the brake pedal is very small - the size of a normal clutch pedal. I guess that is why Ford did that, because I don't have this problem in my Stang.
