It gets easier with practice. Part of this is knowing how to angle your feet to get small gradual changes, part is just building endurance in small muscles so you don't get fatigue that makes your foot shake and the car surge.

So not too bad, apart from the whole not-being-able-to-see-anything deal
It's similar to your normal vision: you can't see much, and you have blind spots. But you learn to compensate by building an image of what is around you using the spots you can see, to the point that you hardly notice the blind spots.
