A first stage investigation for the accidents of Toyota cars has pointed out the driver fault as the primary cause of the accidents.
The US National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration (NHTSA) is concentrating on these cases of unintended acceleration. In a statement to the US Congress, the investigating panel has said that the data recorders of the 58 cars involved in the accidents have showed that in almost 35 cases brake was not applied by the drivers.
In addition, the NHTSA has also said that it had not found any result from the investigation till now and would try to find in near future. According to the report of the inquiry out of 58 accidents, in nine accidents the brakes were applied late.
The spokesman for the Transport Department, Olivia Alair has said that the data recorders review was a small part of government's effort to stop the accidents with Toyota Vehicles.
He has also added that in the first stage of inquiry the engineers had not detected any new safety defects with those vehicles. But Toyota has recalled its 10 million vehicles across the world for various problems last year.
