It amazes me that people get the gas & brake pedals confused. AND even after figuring out they got them confused, continue to throttle it.

I'm assuming it was a clutch problem. Not nearly as intuitive. I mean it's easy, but it ain't that obvious to a first timer.

Back when I drove an automatic, I always used my right foot for gas, left foot for brake. I don't understand why people insist on using the same foot for both.

Oh, I know it is; I commute daily driving stick now, so I have to brake with my right. I just figured if you drive an automatic, why not be that little bit much safer.

In high school, some local organization used to put a mangled pile of steel on the front lawn during prom week with a sign that said "DONT DRINK AND DRIVE". Some clever fark replaced the sign with one of similar size and color that read "DONT LET WOMEN DRIVE".

because 1. you might accidentally engage both the acceperator and the brake at the same time.
2. people who drive with two feet very typically rest their foot on the brake, therefore engaging the brake lights.

Most places don't do the whole learners permit thing. When I got my license in Spain, I had only been with an instructor there about 8 hours total, I could see freaking out with no experience. It's fairly common to see people stalling out from nerves on their actual driving test.

I, at least, had a lot of time back in the US on my license and knew what I was doing.

Which can also warp/score the hell out of your rotors and lead to annual brake jobs.

There's a simple test to see if you can drive, if you can pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time, you're pretty much all set. I THINK this was a result of not being able to do two things at once lol. She was concentrating on the clutch and shifting and not hitting cones blah blah.

Then again she's female, reason doesn't even come into driving, ignore what I said.

I don't think it's typical for people who drive with 2 feet drivers to drag brakes. I never had that problem, personally.

I think anyone who is dragging brakes or a clutch while driving is paying little to no attention to what the hell they're doing while driving and probably shouldn't be behind the wheel.

Easy, one is an accelerator, the other is a decelerator. They're supposed to be mutually exclusive, but there are two pedals since it would be cumbersome to try and make one pedal do both jobs. The easiest way to ensure only one gets hit at a time is to use one foot for both. Trying to use a different foot for each will lead to extra wear whenever both are depressed at the same time, not to mention the risk of panicking in an emergency situation and slamming on both pedals.

That argument works both ways. One could argue people crash into the front of stores while trying to park in front of them because they confuse gas and brake.

Dragging pedals is a totally different issue dealing with negligence, not with the ability to distinguish left and right.

I'm not dogging on the practice, which is obviously globally accepted as conventional. It was just natural for me to use both pedals when I first started driving, hence why it's a mystery to me why more people don't do it. After over a decade of commuting daily with stick shift, I actually do brake automatics with my right foot now, when I find myself driving one, but I know if I had never bothered with stick shift, I'd still be braking with my left.

What happens if you drag the clutch? Sometimes I do that if I don't want to keep shifting between 1 and 2... if traffic slows, I throw the clutch out a little so that the car won't stall at slower speeds while still in 2. Am I going to destroy my transmission?

How so?

I'm asking because this is my first manual transmission. I inherited the car (2006 Audi A4) from my mom, who has driven stick all her life. Car has 40K miles on it. Considering I rarely drive in this type of traffic, does this mean that I'll have to replace the clutch in a year? Five years? When does a clutch normally wear down (if at all) and what's the cost to replace?

In my experience, a clutch is good for about 150k miles of normal use. That varies quite a bit by car and by driver, though. By dragging the clutch, you're heating it up and wearing it down much faster. Most often you find people doing this to hold themselves on a hill. It's a habit that any how-to on driving stick should tell you to avoid. Clutch replacements can be kind of pricey ($1k-$2k), and considering that it's an Audi....

You'll know when the clutch is done when you press on the gas, the engine revs, but the car slows down. At first it'll only happen under heavy acceleration, but it gets worse fairly quickly. In my Mazda, it actually affected the cruise control before it got to the point where I could notice it. When going up a hill, the tiny amount of slippage would cause the cruise control to turn off just as though I'd pushed in the clutch.
 
2012-11-20 11:20:08 PM
Is that a common way of doing a driver's license test to have someone trailing the car from behind? Never seen the whole cone track method in practice before, only the live-street with the tester sitting in the passenger seat.

The clutch should be in one of two positions at all times: All the way to the floor (clutch completely disengaged and therefore making no contact to wear the clutch disc down), or completely let out with your foot not touching it (clutch completely engaged, making full contact without any slippage between the clutch disc and the flywheel). It should spend the least amount of time possible for smooth driving between those two positions.

Think of a clutch disc as a thin brake pad, which it pretty much is. Any rubbing or slipping wears the surface down. There's no rubbing or slipping in the two positions mentioned above but there is everywhere else.

Personally, I got 225Kmi out of a clutch. Given, it was in a car with about 62 horsepower, so your mileage may vary. Replacing a clutch is a time-intensive job as it requires separating the engine from the transmission. The parts probably cost $100-$300. The mechanic will charge you more than that for labor. Don't be surprised at $1000 for your Audi.

Nobody taught me to brake with my left foot, I chose that naturally. I would never teach anyone to do so either since anyone who remembers learning how to drive knows they ultimately teach themselves
how they are going to operate a vehicle.

But you're right though; I also think everyone who isn't me is a stupid motorist, too.

I guess they can't afford those training cars where the instructor sits next to you and has another brake pedal on the passenger side.

Rezurok: The easiest way to ensure only one gets hit at a time is to use one foot for both.


No. The easiest way is to make the modes mutually exclusive either in the actual user interface or some other part of the control system. But that was not the design intent. Back in the day there were simply a lot of mechanical buttons/levers/etc. to push and pull, so you needed all your limbs to make the thing go. Back in 1910 this was a significant mechanical problem and the relative cost of training drivers (and dealing with their errors) was much smaller. In 2012 it's insane that we still use the same system to control something as dangerous as a car.
 
2012-11-21 06:30:04 AM

zixr: But you're right though; I also think everyone who isn't me is a stupid motorist, too.


That's the long and short of it. There are fairly reasonable arguments to be made of either method; personally I'd argue against both of them because it's not 1913 and we have better control systems and user interfaces available these days.
