Toyota President Won't Attend Congress Hearing

Toyota's president says he won't attend a U.S. Congressional hearing on the automaker's safety lapses.

Toyota's U.S. executives will answer lawmakers' questions on the massive gas pedal recalls, Akio Toyoda said Wednesday.

The Toyota Motor Corp. president said he wants to focus on beefing up quality controls at the world's No. 1 automaker.

He promised a brake-override system in all future models worldwide that will add a safety measure against acceleration problems that are behind the recent massive recalls.

The system is a mechanism that overrides the accelerator if the gas and brake pedals are pressed at the same time.
