  • Automatic Car Rules

    I have my automatic car test tomorrow, been practicing all of my parking etc, driving and ive just got one question.

    These days, with automatic cars when you are stationary at a traffic light, do you hold your foot on the brake or place the car into neutral and engage the handbreak?

    Thankyou.

        Do you mean your test is tomorrow or your first lesson?

          Ho-ly shit. :o

          People are already slow enough taking off, imagine if everyone was busy putting their car back into Drive before moving away, imagine all the car engines revving and people going nowhere as they have forgotten whilst sending that text or updating their Facebook status while the light was red...

              Well I wouldn't go holding my foot whilst it is on the brake, seeing as then I cannot see the traffic and I am just not that flexible.

              Handbrakes in autos are for parking or cornering only.

                        You would be surprised at the number of people who Don't know how to drive a Manual Car.

                          You could be like some of the other numpties with autos and drive with your brake lights on all the time.

                            Driving an auto, you always have to have your left foot in your hand, so you don't place it on the brake whilst driving!

                              I do this. It's easy to predict when you're going to get a green at most intersections anyway. You just need to pay attention.
