deadly boot laces
I read Jason Bissell's story about his bootlaces getting caught on the emergency brake pedal of his patrol car. (02/27/05) Although he did not mention what type of car he was driving, I would not be surprised if it was an Impala. My department has just made a switch to Impala's and this has happened to me also. I drove various Crown Victoria's for almost nine years and have never hooked my laces. The pedal position in an Impala is much higher off the floor than in a Crown Vic which contibutes to boot laces sweeping the pedal upon exiting.
