Got my letter today. I'll just have to remember not to kick my gas pedal sideways. I'm still trying to figure out how you can even reach the gas pedal while getting in and out of the car.
I own a manual. My feet are no where near any of the pedals when I'm getting in or out.I'm sure this is for autos, manual the brake pedal is kinda in the way unless you really have that drivers seat wedged into the dash. The only thing I scrape getting in and out is the wheel. It's damaged on the bottom, need to lose weight or find a flat bottom wheel.
And this is exactly what people are doing - pushing sideways on the pedal while getting in and out.I've stomped mine to the floor plenty of times (like applying such force is going to make any difference ) so I'm pretty confident I'd have to be completely careless and use it to push myself out of the car to break it.
