1. A foldable spill-proof pan comprising:
a spill-proof surface having a raised edge, the spill proof surface operable between a use position and a stored position;
wherein when in the use position, a first plurality of spaced apart side support berms are coaxially aligned and extend longitudinally along a first side of the spill-proof surface and a second plurality of spaced apart side support berms are coaxially aligned and extend longitudinally along a second side of the spill-proof surface;
an end berm disposed at a first end of the spill-proof surface and a second end berm disposed at a second and opposed end of the spill-proof surface, the end berms extending between the first and second sides of the spill-proof surface, the first and second end berms configured to be compressed to allow for a vehicle to pass over the end berms to enter into and exit from the spill proof pan;
the side support berms and the end berms are coupled to and support the raised edge to a predetermined height;
wherein the first and second plurality of the side support berms are each longitudinally spaced apart a predetermined distance such that the spill proof surface forms a hinge therebetween such that in the storage position, the predetermined distance enables each of the first and second plurality side support berms to be each folded in parallel relationship.
