Has anybody ever noticed that if you have the parking break on you can still drive in reverse almost compleatly normally? Many times that I’ve set my parking break (usually just for no real reason, just screwing around) when I get back in the car and forget about it I can still back out of my driveway and then I get confused as to why I can’t drive away until I go “oh, parking break.” But I’ve still notciced that cars never seem to roll down hills with the braek set.
Also one more thing about parking breaks. When ever my dad gets a car one of the things he does is goes under the car and cut the cable that goes from the pedel to the break. He does this so that NO one can ever use it. He claims (well more then claims, he’s proven) that if the break isn’t used for a long time that if some one does decide to use it, it will get stuck on. So why does that happen? Does it just bind, like a window getting painted shut?
