The driver's seat doesn't have anything underneath it to prevent anything from the back of the car from rolling underneath it and under the driver's feet. When my daughter drops her toys or sippy cups, in a hard stop, they have rolled underneath the driver's seat and under my brake pedal. This is very dangerous!!!
