do you drive with just 1 foot or both??

my mom drives an automatic and she drives with 2 feet. meaning she has 1 foot on the gas and the other foot on the brake. she has always driven this way for some reason. can't figure out why. i tried doing in once and it confused the heck out of me. 

i thought she was the only person to do this. but i have seen other people do this as well. i went out with my grandma today and noticed she drives with 2 feet as well. 

i don't understand how people do this or why. seems like it would be confusing. it confused me anyways. i had to totally think about what i was doing. driving with 1 foot just feels more natural to me.

anyways do you do this or do you know anybody who does??

I was always told by my driving instructor that doing that is very dangerous.

Just one foot. I tried using 2 one time, just to see how it feels. It was weird!! I also think it's illegal to use both feet in some states. How they would prove that, idk lol.
