How to Avoid a Floor-Mat Safety Hazard in Your Car

 

Your floor mats can be the difference between life and death. 

That’s exactly the type of haunting predicament that Savannah Chrisly, a reality TV star, found herself in when she got seriously injured in a car accident. The reason? Poorly fitted car mats that bunched up under the gas pedals, distracting her from the roads ahead. 

Unfortunately, this isn’t an isolated incident. 

Various accidents reported also included instances where the ill-fitting floor mats were found bunched underneath their gas pedals, preventing victims from stopping their cars on time.

Plus, ill-fitting rubber floor mats also end up draping over gas pedals, dangerously snagging it from the side. 

For your safety’s sake, it’s always better to err on the side of caution. For example, you can get your car mats professionally installed at TRAPO’s hubs, preventing any safety hazards in your future drives.

Read on to learn more quick tips on preventing car mats' safety hazards.

 

Things to Remember To Avoid Floor-Mat Related Risks


  • Do not layer your floor mats on top of each other. 

Sometimes people get all-weather floor mats and stack them on top of each other, thinking that it’s the fastest way to get their car mats installed and ready-to-go. This is often hazardous for obvious reasons, the placement will not be secured and will result in shifting mats during your drive.

 

 

  • Ensure that nothing is getting in the way of your gas pedals.

    Before your drive, do a quick check-through to make sure that there is nothing obstructing your gas pedals. Your best bet? Get floor mats with strong anti-slip technology for better placement.


  • Remove any loose objects on the floor

    These loose items can act as projectiles. Remove any loose items from the floor to ensure that nothing moves around that can get potentially stuck underneath your gas pedals.
