How Strong Should the Emergency Break on the Truck Be?
I've been wondering about this question. At one time or another I accidentally left the emergency break on and started to drive away. I didn't even feel anything different, but luckily I saw the dashboard light on, so I released the emergency break.
Should the emergency break stop the vehicle in such a situation?
Do I need to bring the truck into the shop to have the emergency break adjusted, just to be safe?
Emergency brakes are for parking, really. So, i'd go to an incline, stop, set the brake and see if it holds. If it does, great. If not, it might need to be repaired. I left my mom's emergency brake on last year (she was not amused) and it had to be repaired!!
