The upper pedal has a lower surface with side extending arms (34 in fig2) and folded central link (30) to the lower pedal. Side strips (24,36) on both pedals allow anti-slip surfaces (40) to be added. The upper pedal is engaged by the sole of the driver's shoe to depress the arm (14). The lower pedal is engaged by the shoe's upper surface to lift the arm (14).
