    If you don’t drive a recalled Avalon, Camry, Corolla, Highlander, Matrix, Prius, RAV4, Sequoia, Tacoma, Tundra or VENZA, chances are you share the road with other drivers that do.

    In Washington, D.C., last Wednesday, Toyota Motor Corporation president Akio Toyoda apologized to a U.S. Congressional Committee, saying “...I am deeply sorry for any accidents that Toyota drivers have experienced.”

    To the editor:
