> use my left foot to slowly press the brake

I'm not a driver, but isn't the left foot for the clutch? Don't you have to use both the clutch and the brake when stopping the car so the motor won't stop?

Fewer and fewer cars have clutches anymore, but if the car does have a clutch, then yes, the left foot would be for the clutch.

You shouldn't use your left foot for braking unless you're a sports driver. I just mispoke.

Oops dammit, I meant right foot, but got confused since it's the left pedal.
