Oh yes, I understand and agree. I also wished I had been more clear in my original question.
I should have asked: “My wife’s feet are small and in order to reach the brake pedal easier, she decided to put a folded towel underneath the floor mat to “raise” up the floorboard. That way, with her heel on the floor mat, she claims she can reach the brake pedal easier.
Why is this dangerous and how can I convince her to stop doing that?”
An answer that I can share with her would very much be appreciated.
