Just having LIVED is citations enough for me to second David's admonition.

I find no mention in my DeLorean literature to "emergency brake," nor to the
use you mention -- citations would be very helpful.

If your service brakes should fail I would hope that when you yank on the
"parking brake" it stops the car!!!!!!!!!!! Parking a manual car in gear is
a dangerous habit. One day you (or someone) may try to start the car and it
will lurch forward if you did not a) step on the clutch or b) make sure the
transmission is in neutral first. This is exactly why many newer cars come
equipped with a switch on the clutch so it won't start unless the clutch is
depressed. Hey Bill, another "improvement" for you to add! There are many
terms used that relate to automobiles in England that we don't popularly use
here. Some that come to mind are:
> Boot (trunk)
> Windscreen (windshield)
> Gaiters (seals)
> I am sure if you think about it you can come up with many more. Point is
the same thing is called different names in different places. We are still
talking about the same thing. When you mention CDL, truck drivers are taught
to NOT rely on air brakes for parking. Has nothing in the world to do with
what we are discussing here.
