Last Saturday I had something very unique happen to me. I was traveling down Ga. 53 in my Jeep when I discovered that when I took my foot off of the accelerator, the vehicle didn't slow down. In fact the Jeep kept going at 50 miles per hour with no intention of slowing down. A normal person in this situation would have probably started screaming for mommy - but not the tip man.
