On a manual car there are three foot pedals located on the floor beneath the steering wheel. The accelerator, the brake and the clutch. The pedal on the right is the accelerator - often referred to as the gas pedal. This is the power pedal.
In this regard, is the brake on the left or right?
Yes, on cars with right hand drive (cars designed to drive on left hand side of the road - steering wheel on the right) the gas is still on the right, and the brake on the left, and the clutch pedal to the left of the brake. The gas pedal is always on the right, the brakes on the center and clutch on the left.
What does hit the brakes mean?
[usually plural] the equipment in a car, bicycle, or other vehicle that you use for slowing down or stopping. The brakes failed and the car crashed into a tree. We heard a screech of brakes as Jill's car pulled up. slam on/hit the brakes (=stop suddenly): I saw the child run out, so I slammed on the brakes.
Which pedal is the brake UK?
In Britain, we drive on the left-hand side of the road, so the steering wheel is on the right. However the pedals are in the same position as in left-handed cars, with the accelerator (gas pedal) on the right. The gears and almost always the handbrake (parking brake) is operated with the left hand.
