My mom had this problem, looks young and is short. I'm also afflicted, although not as much, put a pillow on your seat, it seriously makes driving so much easier
Demeaning to who? The short person who can now see over the dashboard? I'm short. I have to pick my cars based on seat/pedal/steering wheel placement because even adjustable vehicles don't always adjust enough. I've never needed a booster but I've certainly thought about it when a car I liked just didn't work out.
I understand how you feel op, I'm 4'11 and people tend to be suprised on how I manage to drive with such a short height.
F the police! Another innocent person arrested for Driving While Short #shortlivesmatter #shortasinstaturenotduration
it's just temporary until u grow some more... u r still growing right??
That's illegal. They can't pull you over unless the see you committing a crime, otherwise that's profiling. It would be the same as pulling you over for being black, and it's a violation of your 4th amendment rights.
It's not illegal to be pulled over for being unable to see over the steering wheel. He could've also just saved OP's life. sitting too low and/or close to the steering wheel can lead to, at the very least, a broken nose and facial bones, or, at the very worst, death in the event of an accident and air bag deployment. Also, if OP can't see over the wheel she can't properly see what's front of and around her. Additionally, if OP is barely able to reach the pedals she may not be able to apply enough force to the brake pedal in an emergency. There are several companies that make devices for cars that allow both disabled and short individuals to be able to safety drive. At the very least OP should get a booster seat and some pedal extensions/blocks. They're cheap and will help her to be a safer driver.
