If your car has an automatic transmission, a parking pawl is engaged when you put your gear shifter into the park position. But when you are parked on an incline, or if your vehicle is equipped with a manual transmission, the mechanism that prevents your vehicle from moving is the parking brake (emergency brake).
An emergency brake/parking brake is engaged either by pulling up on a lever or by pressing down, by foot, on a pedal. It is then released by lowering the lever or pressing down, by foot, a second time. In both of these situations, the emergency brake/parking brake is connected to the rear brakes and locks them in place. This way the vehicle is not able to roll.
Maintaining the brakes is one of the most important safety features for any vehicle owner and is key to a vehicles upkeep for long term ownership. Unfortunately, brake maintenance is often overlooked by drivers. Maintaining the cars brake system can help to prevent costly repairs in the long run, and can keep the car in the best form to avoid a collision. Furthermore, if this damage is not addressed, it can progress to the point that the brakes are ineffective and might totally fail, putting the vehicle and its occupants in danger.
One of the best car experiences I've ever had. 10/10. Booked and quoted on the phone. George was a really nice guy. Knowledgable and practical. Only did the work that was needed with a head's up of when to expect future service. All for a competitive price while I continued with my normal day in my own home. Why didn't anyone think of this before?! I will definitely use them again and recommend to my friends.
