Left foot drivers


The drivers in our area need to know something about what a left foot driver is. A left foot driver is the one who drives down the road with his or her left foot resting on the brake while their right foot is on the gas pedal at the same time. This is just as dangerous as someone talking or texting on a cell phone.

How are the people behind you going to know when you will be stopping?

Recently, I observed a driver doing this and they were staying with the rest of the cars on the Chehalis River Bridge. You were lucky there wasn’t anyone directly behind you. The only way I knew you were going to do something is when you put your turn signal on for the grocery store.

The other problem this causes down the road is that your brakes will wear out sooner. Most cars now come with ABS braking and it isn’t good to ride them.
