Twin Folding Left Foot Accelerator
The left foot accelerator consists of 2 hinged pedals connected by a cable. It will have been set up in such a way as to ensure it is only possible to have one of the pedals down at any time.
To deploy the required pedal, simply pull it down into position and the other pedal will flip up out of the way.
We would recommend that anyone considering driving with a Left Foot Accelerator for the first time should consider first having a driving assessment or lessons with a qualified instructor using a Left Foot Accelerator. A register of instructors is kept by the Queen Elizabeth Foundation (telephone 020 8770 1151).
If the driver has previously driven vehicles with manual transmission, we would not recommend a Left Foot Accelerator. This is due to the fact that the finesse required for braking/accelerating is very different from the operation of a clutch pedal. In this scenario, we would generally suggest the customer considers using push/pull hand controls.
