Sure I have had to gun it pulling out onto highways from misjudging how much room I had before the next car. But I just dont see ever needing to accelerate while coming to a stop or while I am stopped, like others have said if theres a car coming at you out of control the best thing would be to just stay put and hope that driver misses you instead of thinking your going to get out of the way which would usually end up getting in their way. Also most the time when you are stopped you are stopped for a good reason like waiting for other cars to pass through an intersection, I would rather have my foot on the brake if someone is going to rearend me then hit the gas and get t-boned. Maybe its because I have never been in an accident(knock on wood) and rarely use my brakes unless I am coming to a complete stop in which I will take my foot off the gas miles away until I see the light turn green or whatever it is.
