Default Do you drive with one foot or two?

In an auto equipped vehicle, do you drive with your right foot only, or use your left foot for the brake?

I drive 2 foot. When approaching a stop, i use my left foot to hover the brake, then come off the gas and push the brake. Just the way i was taught. Curious to see how others weigh in on this topic...

When you see people riding with their brakes on, but still doing the speed limit they're riding with both feet.

I'm a one footer!!

Started out using 1 foot, but then converted to using both after a few years. Been a 2 footer ever since.

right foot only, two feet is unsafe... Here in Oregon if you are taking the driving test, the instructor will fail you for using your left foot on the brake.

Same as in most Canadian areas. I would argue that because its not preferred by the government, that doesnt mean its unsafe. The operator attached to the foot or feet is what worries me.

I learned on a stick. The right foot has to cover the brake and gas so the left foot can clutch. Now with auto the left foot does nothing.
