Sorry, but I am a career firefighter and I respond to motor vehicle accidents daily. Most of the time that we need to use extrication equipment, the drivers feet are entangled in the pedals.
Several months ago, we went to the scene of a Cherokee into a telephone pole. We could see the flames from the firehouse. It took 54 minutes from the time of dispatch to get this guy out of his Jeep. His upper body was free to flop around while we supressed the flames, but the floor and pedals had folded up around his feet. He became very much aware of his surroundings as we cut the Jeep away from his body. Last time I heard, he was still alive.
I just wanted to offer some useful info before people add more fuel to the passenger compartment. Engineers consider the flammability of materials when they're designing vehicles. Guys in their garage don't always think of that. I thought that some of them might want that option.
