What do you do if your gas pedal gets stuck?

So the press is having a field day with Toyota's gas pedal problems.

Maybe I have missed it, but I haven't come across any advice from the press (or Toyota for that matter) as to what you should do if you encounter this problem.

I've heard a few tails from people who did, most recount tales of having both feet on the brakes trying to slow the vehicle.

Putting the car into neutral would seem a good option, failing that I would think the thing to do would be switch off the ignition, but then you have to worry a bit about power steering and steering locks.

So why isn't the press interested in educating the public?
