My girlfriend and I just took a very long trip to see the eclipse. She offered to drive some of the time which I was grateful for. However she is one of those who does not have a steady foot on the gas peddle. If we got too close to the car in front of us rather than just ease off as we approached she just took her foot off the peddle and then stomped on it again to get going once we had backed off. Never mind what it does to the mileage, the sudden deceleration acceleration bothered me. I asked her to use the cruise control but she was not familiar enough with it to use it effectively. She braked too hard to turn it off.
I hadn’t ridden with her before on a long drive, only once in her car. We take my car since it is newer so I drive and so far not long enough to trade off. Many years ago in high school a teacher gave me a ride home and he had two modes, full throttle or no throttle. I remember I would never ride with him again.
Is anyone else bothered by sudden acceleration/deceleration?
