I call BS but I suppose it is possible that when someone is distracted playing with a phone or speeding trying to beat the light those accelerators get stuck. Reminds of the time I got stopped for speeding, I told the cop I need to use the restroom really bad, he said yeah I do to so I will write this ticket as fast as I can. I should have went for the stuck gas pedal it appears.
