Alternate Accelerator

Is one's knee action as forceful, subtle and easy to control as foot action?

I used to drive my mother crazy when I drove her auto transmission car with my right foot on the brake and the left on the gas. She claimed it was unsafe and I countered that if needed, I did not have to lift my right foot to apply the brake, thereby saving that split second needed to avoid an emergency.

Actually, I did it to drive her crazy.

Apparenty, people decided we didn't kneed this. *rim shot*

But it does sound like a good way to wear thru a set of brake pads.

KDP, either that was a right-hand drive car, or you're a contortionist.

Foot or knee, either takes practice to develop the proper touch. Same with a foot on the brake.
