As always on these threads we get what is an reply someone dislikes and then the insults come out,
If you go back to the topic and what was said you'll see that the O.P says "he then went on to use the floor brake with one foot and place the other foot on the excellerator!!!!!!!
What the **** do you think he was doing with both feet being on two peddles?
The stop brake works to stop the car,
the (hand brake) is for holding the vehicle so it cant roll, Your not going to use any brake pads when using the hand brake so its not wearing anything out,
Dont you think this is an extra safe item thats well worth having ?
If you have kids and they get into the vehicle and move the select stick & the vehicle's correct hand brake isn't in use !!!!
you've a good chance of that vehicle rolling (lets hope for those who say they never use this brake that no kids are behind such a 3 ton vehicle if this should happen;
ref saying about driving two feet with the "stick change"
is a completly different way of the gear box being used.
Ive no problems driving and having passed my test at 17 and now 65 and always had clean licence's both HGV CLASS 1 and car /motor cycle & holding the C.P.C dont think i need the likes of you to start throwing out comments ref
me being confused ref what peddles to use
But i did attend a road accident that later proved that the driver had tried to change gear doing 50mph in an automatic car due to his forgetting it was just that "Automatic" (a very nasty scene) and the death of his daughter.
And ref you saying that you can use both feet on an auto/ brake peddle because its bigger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think you should re-read what your saying before you press submit.
And as a final point , dont you use the hand brake on a manual when your doing a hill start????????????
Then why the **** is it such an issue to use the hand brake on an automatic????????????
If you want to drive safe use the brakes as intended
Ive a hand brake provided and i intend to use it as i do when needed
iF YOU FEEL SO SAFE NOT USING IT,,,,,,,,???? Fine,
But keep the insults to yourself they're not welcome a bit daft and not called for.
