Accelerator and brake are controlled by a mechanical hand control. A lever is connected to the accelerator and brake pedals. To accelerate he moves the lever backward; to brake, he presses the lever forward.
A cover plate is mounted in front of the standard pedals so the user’s feet will not be caught. It is easy to remove the plate when another person drives the car.
It is important for the user to use the original equipment as far as possible. He prefers mechanical solutions to electronic solutions.
The tipster previously had an electronic accelerator/brake that once stopped in the middle of the trip; he therefore prefers mechanical solutions.
