Having short legs not only can make driving difficult it can also put the driver in danger of serious injury if they are involved in an accident. Many people are injured every year by air bags that deploy if they are sitting too close to the steering wheel. It is recommended that drivers should have less than 10″ from their chest to the steering wheel to avoid air bag injuries.
Pedal extenders allow drivers with shorter legs to sit further back from the steering wheel of their vehicle while still being able to reach the gas and brake pedals.
I have just finished posting a short article in the vehicle equipment section of Mobility Basics on pedal extenders. For more information please visit http://mobilitybasics.ca/vehicle-equipment/pedal-extenders
