[DML] RE: Parking brakes in England.



If you want proof that the device isn't a parking brake in England, watch
the Top Gear show wherein three cars bought for less than 1000 pounds were
parked on a test hill at the proving grounds.  Clearly the English don't
intend that brake to be used for parking.  To further fuel the fire, the
MGTD owners calls the device a "racing brake".  You have to press the button
on the end of the handle to set the brake, otherwise it is ready to
participate in the task (?) of reducing the cars speed, if it ever goes fast
enough.  Maybe the designers were anticipating drifting as a auto related
event.
