One of the positive side effects of blogging is that people contact me with various, relevant issues such as career advice, research questions and help with finding references. I occasionally get very specific human factors questions as well.
But today I go the oddest question. It was from a car dealer who I do not know. I have removed the name and contact information for anonymity, but here is the word-for-word email:
im the Business Manager with the Local Ford Dealer.
My questions is...is there away to swap the position of the the brake and
accelator pedals in 2008 Ford Focus, we have a Tech, who's aunt wants a new
Focus and needs the pedals swapped!!
Im hoping you can help or point me in the right direction.
I responded that I did not think it was a good idea, and probably not legal to do so. Anyone know otherwise?
