You still won't accept another's point of view will you? It really doesn't need explanation, clarification, or the approval of others, some people just LFB naturally, such as DickyC and others, some don't, the fact that you insist there's no place for it only proves your inability to accept someone else's ability to do it, the people advocating LFB don't claim an advantage to doing it, they just do it, so again I ask the question which you failed to answer the first time of asking, why does it matter to you? Why can you not accept that it's just something they do?

This is PH, we can’t have people saying nice things about each other.

I agree with Graveworm, LFB has no place on the public roads because most people just can't use their less-dominant leg as well as their primary leg. Although it sounds great in theory, in practice it often means that you end up not pressing the pedal as hard as you should do or would with the right leg.

It might be good on a race track for balancing the car, but keep it off the roads.
Recent scientific studies have shown that in 95.6% of the male population, their middle leg is the most dominant factor in daily life.
However, this is rarely used for braking when driving a vehicle.
It is however very useful for teaching females how to change gear manually.

If this or the earlier question was directed at me I apologise.

I have frequently and specifically said that I have used both and see no clear advantage for either. I also said that there can't be consensus because it depends on which benefits an individual thinks are more important.
The only thing that I have been debating is when people assert LFB is demonstrably better overall or either side refusing to accept that there are advantages and disadvantages to their point of view.
In my first post I literally said I don't care what people do.

Tried and can’t do it? Persevere, I can now brake equally well with either foot.

Thanks for the unnecessary apology, it was directed at both yourself and JimSuperSix, my point remains though, just because you can't see the point, or advantage of LFB why can you not accept that others prefer to do it? Both of you have stated that "there's no place for it in every day driving", and yet several people have stated that they use it every day without issue.

Ah yes, but those of us who use LFB on a day to day basis are constantly crashing into things due to the weak and feeble pressure we exert on the pedal.
I crashed into a the rear of another today due to this unfortunate fact - and I haven't even used my car today.

I'll give that a go then, although I am worried my middle leg will get stuck under the pedal in an emergency. I tried cadence clutching with my 3rd elbow but it didn't really work on an automatic.

I can see the point of both and can't see an overall advantage. Throughout and in the post you quoted I said I have no problem with people doing either.

No I haven't said anything of the sort I used it every day in every day driving.. I have said, the manual and the instructors say its detrimental in my current car, and the previous 2 car manuals said not to do it.
