This video turns to expression "pedal to the metal" into a literal translation. Only the person putting said pedal to said metal has no choice -- it's jammed.

This almost-episode of 'Cops' went down in Kansas City, Mo. While cruising down Interstate 35, the accelerator pedal of this Kia Sorento got stuck to the floor, causing the vehicle to reach speeds of 110mph. Mrs. Speed Racer managed to maintain control as the car bolted in and out of traffic, often taking to the shoulder of the highway to avoid other cars. After 35 minutes, the car finally comes to a stop.

Thankfully, after cops realized this wasn't a soccer mom gone nuts, they were able to escort her to safety.
