Clutch or driver failure?

An elderly lady's car broke down outside our house last night during
rush hour. Traffic chaos of course so a few of us pushed her onto my
drive. She had burned out her clutch big time. The car behind stopped
because the driver could see the smoke coming from her car. After
things had cooled, I tried her car, nasty noises from the clutch and
no drive at all. This was her second clutch failure in that car. Now
VW Polo=92s are fairly reliable so to burn out 2 clutches in 19,000
miles is some achievement. She did admit she tended to ride the clutch
a bit too much. Obviously a gift of understatement there.
We sent her home in a recovery truck.
