nippled rubber floormat ?



 Pleas help me!

 I can't imagine what "the nippled rubber floormat inside the bus" is.

I came across the expression in a novel.

The novelist is an American.

Do you usually have any nippled ruber floormat inside a bus in the US?

Would you tell me what "Nippled rubber" is?

Is it just "bumpy rubber"?

Hi! Funny question. Laughing

"Nippled rubber" does mean "bumpy" or "textured" rubber. So you guessed right!

This isn't a very common description. I haven't heard of "nippled rubber" before. The novelist is a pretty creative writer!
