I dunno about Corona virus Europe, what about Africa?  ???

It could be utterly devastating if it takes hold in rural areas of countries like Uganda, Zambia, Malawi or Mozambique where there is little or no healthcare.  :-\

Or the slums of the big cities like Nairobi or Jo'burg.  :(
Population reduction anyone?

Maybe it was released on purpose?   :-\  ::)  :-X

I have a disabled friend with push pull steering wheel controls (no legs or feet)
i tried using those controls  :-[
fortunately the car still has stop go pedals as well   ;D

no doubt you would get used to it if you had no choice

I've always go on quite well with my mate's hand controls, although cruise control is a massive help for motorway driving. 

He also has a Defender with a manual gearbox, where there is a little lever that presses the clutch pedal.  So when you want to change gear, press a button on the gear stick, there's a momentary delay, the clutch is pressed and you then change gear.  Release the button and the clutch is released.  :y

It's a great system but takes a little getting used to!  ::)

There'll be no need for any interaction at all when we all become Jetsons.
I think even I will be pushing up the daisies before that happens Uncle Stemo  :-X  :D

Obviously shows that we are all different
well , 2 ways of driving an automatic anyway  ;D
I guess whatever you're comfortable with is the correct way (for you)  :)
I know you're a bit of a newbie compared to some of us, so let me explain the ways of OOF. If a disagreement starts on a thread, all parties dig their heels in and refuse to budge, not even the tiniest, weeniest bit. The internet is searched rabidly to find any small snippet of information to back up your theory. If that doesn't work, you make stuff up, and look back at previous posts to see if there's anything you can use to ridicule your adversaries.
If you manage to win the argument, great, but it's better if you can humiliate them too.
If no resolution is found at the end, then grudges are held and you jump down each others throat at every opportunity.
Got it?

 ;D :D spilt my coffee  ;D
OK,
mo ones even mentioned using your left foot for STOP and GO   :-X
Could be an option if you only had one leg, I suppose.  ;D
or really need the loo  ;)



I actually have a mate who had his right leg amputated after treading on a landmine drives an automatic Jaguar with the pedals swapped over ! I have driven it & got used to it in a very short space of time just using my left foot.
