Few people check what is rolling around under the driver’s seat, but it’s a check well worth doing. Apart from the risk of injury by unsecured objects flying around in the passenger compartment during a crash, items like an empty cool drink bottle or can could roll forward and become wedged under the pedals during emergency manoeuvres.
This could leave you without full control of the vehicle at a critical time.
Check your vehicle’s interior regularly for such obstructions and either throw them away or remove them to the boot where they can not be a potential danger.
