    I’m thankful I’m not as short to make driving a little harder for me, but I’m short enough to have to wiggle on my seat every once in a while just to leverage myself up a little bit. I do agree with your point though, because every after ‘wiggle’ I see a lot more than I would have if I didn’t re-adjust myself.

    A seat height adjustment and sometimes even an adjustment of the steering height can help low drivers. However, using a cushion is not good advice. The cushion will reduce the effectiveness of the seatbelt dramatically! If a driver is really too short, special means and sometimes even booster seats should be used to provide them the necessary visual field.

    A proper height is when the eyes are in line with the line of the upper third or half of the windshield. In most cars, this is achieved when the head is four or five fingers every from the ceiling.

      I think we’re saying the same thing with regards to 3 fingers above the steering wheel or half way up the windshield. As far as a cushion goes, I disagree. It’s a cushion or a wedge. If it’s firm, it does the job. They are small enough to be placed upon the base of the seat and does not affect the seatbelt in any way. If the cushion is too big and wide, it can get in the way of course.

  3. The driver’s comfort should be given attention to ensure that he would be having a good performance when driving to prevent accidents from occurring. For those who lack in height, it would be best to make the necessary adjustment so that they could have a better view of the road.

  4. Height can be a problem when driving because of the difficulty of seeing what’s ahead clearly. Fortunately, there are adjustments that can be done in order for such drivers to feel more comfortable while driving. This ensures the safety of the passengers as well as other vehicle users on the road.
