The SafeDrive Pro Plus is the best in class, Right Hand Drive (RHD) conversion kit for postal mail carriers and driving schools. As a postal carrier, add speed and convenience to your mail route and have the ability to drive from either side with no reconfiguration. Or, as an educator, help a tentative student get the car up to expressway speeds when entering from the on-ramp.
We used the same brake pedal design and control as our successful SafeDrive Pro driver's education brake. The gas pedal side provides even more feel. We use a finer cable and angled the pedal to provide a more responsive and delicate control.
The SafeDrive Pro Plus Driver Education or Postal Carrier Brake and Gas comes complete with the brake/gas system as shown (no assembly required), cables, mounting hardware, flashlight, a full-color instruction manual, and a security pin to lock the pedals to avoid accidental use.
We even include an extra set of cables for free*. We recommend thoroughly checking and if needed, replacing the cables every year or whenever the SafeDrive Pro Plus is moved to a new vehicle. So nothing to order - you're all set regardless if you are performing normal maintenance or needing to move to a new vehicle.
The SafeDrive Pro Plus Driver Education or Postal Carrier Brake and gas can also be mounted using our T-Mount so there's no need to bolt it into the passenger side floor. The T-Mount is not included, it is a separate product.
If you're a postal carrier looking to improve your Right Hand Drive (RHD) experience, take a look at the SafeDrive Postal Steering Stick. No more reaching over for the steering wheel, drive from the comfort of the passenger's seat. It's a great combination and is on sale right now!

*Mail carriers will apply the brake and gas upwards of 400 times a day during a normal route which is much more than a driving instructor. Hence we recommend the cables be thoroughly checked each year and provide free cables to ease maintenance and ensure safety.
I bought these brake/gas petals because I recently got a job as a RCA for the USPS. I paid to get them installed and have used them for my 1st week at the postal service so far. They seem great, however they are a little stiff. I have to press on the brake kinda hard to stop, which kinda makes me nervous because if I had to stop fast, I don't know if I could. I spoke with the mechanic that installed them, and he said they aren't going to feel like my normal petals because normal petals are hydraulic and these aren't.... I guess that makes sense, but as a rural mail carrier with so much stop and go, it does make me a little nervous. Is anybody else's petals stiff? I don't mind that the gas petal is, but I don't feel like I have a very good stopping power with the brake. It does fine, but I just have to press it pretty hard, and it doesn't slow down very quick. Any advice would be appreciated.
My installation is being used on a mail delivery vehicle. The mechanic that I had install the pedals had a hard time getting them attached to the floor due to the way the vehicle was constructed, but after he realized what the deal was he had an easy time getting them mounted. I have used this vehicle 2 days now on the route and have had no problems, just had to get used to the pressure needed to use the brakes. In fact I am getting ready to order another set for another vehicle that I will be using. Hope the installation goes as easy for this vehicle.
The setup does what I bought it to do but after several hours of delivering my right leg kills me. The angle of the pedals after installation and how that causes me to use them and the amount pressure I have to press the pedals becomes exhausting and annoying. I deliver from a Volvo station wagon there's room but the pedals had to be installed on the fire wall or there wouldn't be room to work. I bought the installation bar but it's too general and not specific enough to be of any assistance that I can see. Oddly enough though the pedals are at exactly the same angle the bar wold have them sitting at. I'm having a hard time believing that this is normal operation by everyone else's reviews and I want to love them but that is almost an abusive relationship at this point. Sadly I think this is going to be nature of the beast. I believe I'll consider other pedal setups in the future.
It took some slight engineering due to the nissan firewall being flimsy. When I talked to Phil he was way more than helpful and made suggestions and even sent extra parts to fix it. It all worked great. The only thing I'm having to get used to is the throttle pedal being a little hard to push but I think that also is the pedals being mounted from the floor instead from the dash down. Overall 5 stars.
I have been using the pedals for about 2 weeks as a mail carrier, and have had no problems. They are built well and I had my local mechanic install them. The stick works great for steering too. My one complaint is that the metal "arms" above the pedals are very close together, and my big feet sometimes press both of them at the same time and cause a sudden lurch. I have to be careful to press with my toes only. This probably isn't an issue for people with small feet. Also would like to see an installation video specific to the SafeDrive Pro Plus model; all that I found was the one for the brake only model.
