I also brake with my right foot unless I need to prevent from rolling back but even after I have forward momentum I switch back to the right foot. My dad always taught me to brake with the right foot. I have a buddy of mine that he brakes with his left foot. I have tried to brake with my left foot and I just can't do it. It takes me too long to brake and even when I do I either brake to hard or to soft. I did however do this just to see if I could and where no one was around so that I made sure I didn't put anybody in danger.
They keep saying the right person will come. I think mine is my truck.

I have only driven a few manual's but I learned to drive using both feet and my driving instructor was pissed off about it and wanted to fail me for it.
I would love to see some clinical information on how the brain reacts having to use the right foot or both feet cause I think its a load of crap.
You can train people do complete a process any way you want and once they are use to it, they react faster with the method they are comfortable with.
If we really want to get technical about it, it does take longer to take one foot off of one pedal and move it to the other one than to use the foot that isn't doing anything in the first place.
You just don't want to press both pedals at the same time.
