Poor folks....they need additional manual how-to-drive printed specially for US citizens... @Sidekick That sounded pretty stupid. How much time did you give yourself to think about this before you decided to type it out? Probably not much time at all.

@Sidekick Maybe we should be a little more forgiving of the drivers. If my shoes "deaccelerated", or had already accelerated and needed decelerating, I'd be so surprised I might have trouble dealing with the car's acceleration/deceleration, regardless of having read the manual.

floormats kept a driver’s shoe from deaccelerating

I hate it when my shoes do not deccelerate.

How much time did it take for them to sue Nissan for those "dangerous" floormats, I wonder ? Stupid creatures. Next time they will sue the designer of shoe for "unwanted acceleration".

Not all cars have the plastic hook that keeps the mat from moving forward and causing this problem. This must be the problem here. Aftermarket mats that don't have the hook cause problems all the time as they slide forward and push on the accelerator or get under the brake pedal and reduce braking ability. In the winter when the floor seldom gets above freezing here the soggy mat is a frozen board and the problem gets worse.
