The penny rule

I've seen the "Cup of coffee on the dash" rule and this is like that. Put a penny between you legs on the seat. If you drive smoothly the penny will stay in place. So long as you don't stop, corner or speed up too fast friction will hold the penny in place. If you can't see the penny because your thighs are too big and there is no gap maybe you should lighten your car's load by lightening your load. Just a thought. Cheers
