It seems that you had a different problem than the OP. His is being blamed on "improper pedal geometry." To me, that is because the person is not familiar with the vehicle, either because it has just been purchased and is new to the driver, or the driver is distracted because of texting, eating, drinking, etc.
Your problem, as you stated, is caused by a faulty sensor- nowhere near what the OP was posting about.
I see where you are coming from, though. Back in 70-something, I had a '64 Buick Skylark. The complex I lived in had fairly high speed bumps, and a security patrol that loved to hand out tickets for doing 12 in a 10MPH zone. I was going over a speed bump and kinda punched down on the gas pedal to sort of "jump" over it, and the pedal went all the way to the floor and stayed there, wide open throttle. I immediately pushed hard on the brake and turned off the key. Neighbors came out to see what the problem was, and we popped the hood and could see nothing wrong. One of the guys reached in and wiggled the linkage some and said "Try it now." Luckily, I had gotten in the car instead of just reaching through the open window. As soon as I turned the key, the car started and leaped forward, WOT. Les had grabbed the top of the grill and got off very lucky- skin off the ankle and a burned forearm from the radiator. That problem turned out to be a broken motor mount. When I went over the bump, the engine torqued up, the throttle linkage pivoted down instead of up, the shifter pin pulled out of the side of the transmission, leaving it with a WOT and the tranny in drive, The interlock switch was on the shift linkage, which thought it was in park, so the engine started. No one was seriously hurt (whew!), and the mount was easy enough to replace.

Funny - I often think the brake pedal is too far back (towards teh
driver) from the gas pedal. I often catch my shoe on the inside of the
brake pedal as I try to travel back and push it.
