    I hope youcan read there are many more just like this.
    the accelerator and brake are so close together on my 2008 ford f150 that i have
    on occasion accidently pressed both the accelerator and brake pedals at the same
    time while braking. The first time it happened i did not know what was happening. The
    engine was revving up as i was applying the brake, so i applied the brake harder and
    the engine continued to rev higher until the truck lurched forward. This caught me
    by suprise and my foot came off the brake and the engine revved down. I realized
    that my foot had been on the accelerator the same time it was on the brake. Since
    that first time, i know that if the engine starts revving while i am applying the brake
    that i have my foot on both and can angle my foot to the left to remove it from the
    accelerator while still keeping my foot on the brake. Even so, one time i just missed
    hitting the car in front of me while "stopping". Ths seems to me to be a dangerous
    design. When the engine begins revving for "no apparent reason" one tends to panic
    and steps harder on the brake which makes the problem worse. I think there needs
    to be a recall on this problem.
