As I was on the Florida Turnpike en route to work this morning, I pushed down hard on the accelerator to merge into traffic and the accelerator pedal snapped off two inches above the pad at the first bend. I was suddenly in a bad fix and managed to get onto the shoulder. On closer inspection, the whole pedal is made of hollow plastic! I couldn't believe it. I am now trying to find a replacement that isn't as poorly designed as the factory original. I don't want another hollow plastic pedal that might kill me under different circumstances. I am attaching an image.
