Do you put your parking brake on when you park your car?

Not unless I’m parked on a hill.

Only when I drive a stick shift car.

No. The car(s) do it for me. They’re smarter.

Only when driving manual transmission. Never on automatic.

Yes. There’s no reason not to use it. Besides, it only takes a second to put it in place.

Always. There is no reason not to, and every good reason to use it every time. Less wear on the transmission, less chance of the car rolling, and the regular exercise of it assures it will function properly if it is ever needed for its secondary functions, to help maneuver or as an emergency brake to stop the car if the primary braking systems fail.

My husband doesn’t believe in using it because he says the transmission is strong enough to hold thousands of pounds worth of car, so the car rocks when he gets out. It drives me nuts.
I always use it.

I am guessing you park on a hill?

I use it all the time...hill or no hill. I got used to using it while driving a manual trans.

I don’t use it on flat ground, always on a hill though, it’s bad for the transmission to rest all the weight on it.

To each his own, but I’m not a fan of trusting a metal pin to keep my car parked. 😉

True, no one wants a runaway car

I learned to drive while living in a house on top of a hill. Using the parking brake is second nature. Especially after that time my mother didn’t use it and the car rolled down the hill.
