Default first time driver question?

Hii. This might be a stupid question but im a first time driver so please understand (:















First of, im very short so plz also keep that in mind.















When i drive in my moms toyota camry car, i cant reach the pedals very well, i can reach it but not comfortably. Im pretty sure all the buttons on the side were to there maximum, but i still couldnt comfortably reach it.















Does anyone have any suggestions on how to comfortable reach the pedals.















Thanks?

DO NOT do what "Gestapo suggested. you're a new driver. if taken seriously is extremely dangerous.

sorry, don't have an answer for you. though some use pillows. or seat bolstering covers. not seat covers. well they are. but have more padding.

I am 4'10 and have the same issue since I learned to drive 18 months ago. Part of the problem can be the car, because some don't adapt as well as others for shorter drivers. But I guess you can't just change car (worth thinking about when getting your own car in future though!)































Some people buy pedal extenders like these http://www.pedalextenders.com/ (one of the pictures is someone else in a Camry!) and they are probably the safest way of dealing with this.































Another thing you have to be careful of- does the car have an airbag? If it does then you can't sit right close to the steering wheel. Here's an article http://auto.howstuffworks.com/car-dr...es/airbag2.htm































I hope this helps. If you want to talk about other details you can mail me cutieclaire2205@yahoo.co.uk.
