    phew that was lucky. i knew a guy who was in his car and driving and his mates cap was on the dash. when they went round a corner the cap went into the drivers side footwell and they both went to grab it and they ended up crashing into a classic lamp post. had to fix that as well as the car

    I have done this mate.

    Its crazy, in hindsight the obvious thing to do is just push the brake or remove your hand but you just end up going into a blind panic making the situation 100 times worse.

    Never bumped mine either mate, touch wood, but certainly shakes you up.

    I was in my brothers TR7 when a can of coke rolled from under the drivers seat and wedged itself under the brake pedal. About 10s later he went for an emergency stop and the brake pedal hit the coke can and stopped. Quick look down and he put all his strength into it. We stopped just in time, but the coke can exploded and covered the footwell and up his trouser legs.

    I nearly **** myself when the can exploded!

    Just be thankful you have stories like this to tell!
