Should or should not use two feet when driving an automatic transmission?
When using both feet, it is easy for the driver to confuse which foot is braking, which foot is accelerating in a dangerous situation.
The automatic gearbox design has only two brake pedals, the accelerator and the manufacturer recommends that the driver use only his right foot to step on the brake and throttle, and the left foot to rest. However, many people have the habit of left foot braking, right foot throttle. This is a mistake to give up.
There are many reasons drivers should use only their right foot, including design and operation. In terms of design, the accelerator pedal and the brakes deviate to the right, so using the left foot is wrong posture, can twist, scoliosis.
Regarding operation, when pedaling on both feet, there will be many cases due to habit or tired legs, the driver simultaneously pedal both brake and throttle when traveling on the road. This causes the brakes to work continuously, easy to redden, ineffective. In addition, vehicle performance decreased, increasing fuel consumption.
Finally, it is more important when the unexpected situation, the driver reflexively pedal on both feet, this reduces the ability to stop the car, the worse case is to cause an accident.
Therefore, in order not to accidentally pedal, the driver of an automatic transmission gear should use only the right foot and the left foot to rest. There are people who use both legs when driving an automatic transmission, but usually it is an athlete in the race or off-road, they are inherently skilled, top notch in regulating the throttle and brake pedals.
