Some drivers, thinking about extraneous things, can go without noticing the tightened handbrake.
This type of motion harms the braking system of the car.
If you happen to have such a trouble, immediately remove the handbrake and test the car brakes yourself or with the help of specialists.
Go for a walk and continue drivingUneasy, but possible. Often sinners do it with newcomers, with excitement forgetting the movements that experienced drivers have on the machine. At the same time, the entire braking system suffers, and especially the brakes on the rear wheels. Some modern cars have a built-in anti-riding system that activates the beep if the lever is in the raised position or lowered, but not completely. React to the warning immediately as soon as the warning sound is heard. Older machines are also able to alert the owner of forgetfulness, but in the form of a luminous icon on the dashboard. Most often it is presented in the form of a burning or flashing red exclamation mark, noting that you should immediately lower the handbrake. Driving with a tight hand brake is difficult not to notice and by how the car moves. If it seems to you that the car is going slower than usual, you have to put more pressure on the gas to develop at least some speed, and in the hill it's generally impossible to go, check if the activated handbrake is the reason for this. After a prolonged movement on the handle, you can notice an unpleasant smell arising from overheating of brake pads. In order for the brakes not to fail at all, you should stop right away, as soon as your nose smells something strange. To test how much your forgetfulness has done harm to the car, go to a small hillock. In the car, start the neutral transmission, tighten the handbrake, slowly release the foot brake. If the car starts to roll, then the rear brakes have ceased to perform their immediate function, and the only place you can still go is the nearest car repair shop. If you are not sure about the reliability of your handbrake, take it as a rule, when parking the car, it is always not only to tighten the brake, but also to turn on the gear. This is especially true in the hills. Depending on how the iron horse stands, turn on the first or the rear gear, which will prevent it from rolling off the slope.
