With all the "stuck" gas pedal issues from Toyota this video shows how BMW's brake override system work. Without lifting off the gas Tom Plucinsky, BMWs Product and Technology Manager for North America brings the test 3 series to a surprise (at least for the camera man) stop.

Good to see that while Toyota and other car makers are stumbling with technology or economical issues BMW remains on top!
