Re: Handbrake Failure?
I always try leave the car in gear when parked on a hill. When facing up the hill, I leave car in first, and with the wheels facing away from the kerb, so that if the car does roll back the kerb will prevent it going to far, hopefully.
If facing down the hill, I try to leave in reverse, with the wheels pointed towards the kerb. I think this is all in the highway code, unfortunately, peope forget and get into bad habits, myself included. No reflection on the driver, just a hard lesson learnt the bad way unfortunately. Hope you get it sorted Jay.
