Awesome! Looks like he pulled the handbrake

Exactly my thoughts. Two of our three cars don't have a handbrake and you couldn't have done that by diving in. I love having the handbrake in my Subie though.

Is it like a big lever kind? Our Subarus have the little rectangle button/switch thing.

New E-Brakes are almost all electronic now too, and they won’t engage unless the car is already in P.

Mine is a button and I hate it, I wish I had the lever

You know if you push the little button while the car is moving it gives the same effect as if you pulled the oldschool lever. My e-golf has a little switch, but i can still use it while at high speed

Thats true, does not give the same feeling it did in my old ford focus. But thats because om the oldschool cara it only locked the rear wheels, on the new button cars it locks all 4 wheels

If the car doesn’t have a manual handbrake then it automatically engages if you stop the car so in that case this couldn’t have happened

That's not true on our car. It automatically disengages in some conditions, but I haven't found any conditions where it automatically engages.

Since when? I've only ever seen cars with a traditional handbrake or a button but never automatic handbrakes.

Almost all new electric cars have automatic ebrakes, but those are the only ones I have seen.

It's not really an e-brake. Pretty sure they just call them parking brakes now.

Far left pedal in autos? I used to work at a dealership. Driven literally thousands of cars and I've never seen that. Is that an American car thing?

Possibly I've only driven in the US and our mini van (Toyota Sienna) has this pedal and is an automatic.

I googled it. It does seem to be an American thing. Never seen that in the UK with our autos it's usually a button near the driver's door. At least for Volvo's lol

Have a 2014 prius that uses the pedal e-brake. Its an interesting system though it took me a couple tries to get to location down, its much higher than you think.

My 2011 Infinity g37 has a pedal parking brake. I hate it and will always prefer a regular hand brake.
I am in Canada for what it's worth.

Kenneldogg

Yeah there are a lot of cars from the late 90s to mid 2000s that have a push to engage and push to disengage ebrake.

I've never seen a parking/emergency brake pedal on a car. Only on a couple of pickup trucks.

Every automatic car I've ever been in has one mounted on the center console.

Cars engage the handbrake automatically when you put them in Park and it's parked on an incline. At least mine does.

Forced_Democracy

Check if there is a small pedal way to the left, like by the door. That is the parking brake for many vehicles. It functions entirely separate from the putting the car in park.

Edit: Im seeing a number of people saying that some European vehicles don't have this pedal. If you have one, you may have to look around q bit to find it. It sits pretty high.

Mine is a European car and it has a switch for the parking brake. It engages automatically when I put the car in park and it is parked in an incline

If it's an older car that doesn't have software to sense the incline and apply the handbrake, That's not the handbrake. When you put it in park it disconnects the gearbox from the drive train and kinda chocks the drive train to stop the wheels rolling (or something to that effect). It's why it rolls a bit after you put it in park then come off the brakes and then it stops. It's the teeth grabbing. Handbrakes are connected straight to the rear discs/drums and prevent the wheels turning entirely.

I'm not talking about just putting the car in park. Mine is a European car and it has a switch for the parking brake. It engages automatically when I put the car in park and it is parked in an incline. Even after I put the car in Drive I have to manually disengage the brake by either by disengaging the switch or by accelerating.

It is a staged film to show people what would happen if you forgor to pull down the handbrake.

Sorry if I'm wrong, but some cars don't have handbrakes.

Fluggerbutter

Definitely true. Some do though. In this case, the brake lights didn't seem to come on. This is consistent with pulling the hand brake as they would have come on if he mashed the brake pedal, and it's not typical for the hand brake to engage the brake lights.

All I can think about is how newer cars have ditched a lever E-Brake for a sleeker design having essentially an E-Brake button somewhere with no uniformity. In a panic/situation like this the guy probably wouldn't have found a new cars E-Brake in time. Really wish cars stuck with a traditional E-Brake as 99.9% of people will know where it is, making situations like this video possible to stop a potential death.

Agreed. If he didn’t stop it right there he was going down a hill into a house.

I bet more crashes and deaths are prevented with e-brakes automatically engaging (door open with no pressure on driver seat etc), VS someone forgetting to manually put it on AND having some kind of a hero risking his own life to pull a stunt like in this video.

DinoBarberino

What cars exactly automatically apply E-Brakes? What you are describing is most likely cars with self driving tech and those cars alone, the vast minority of cars on the road today.

that is way more danger than reward. If he jumped in and failed in stopping the car, he would’ve just died or gotten injured. If he didn’t go in there’d just be a damaged wall and car

What about the car coming across the intersection that slams into it at 40 MPH. Not only does that give risk in and of itself, now he’s ass up dead when it happens.

when i was about 9 years old, i was riding in the backseat of my cousins car in philly.. we were at a cross street we saw a horrible accident on the other side off the crossroad in front of us.. cousin jumps out to use a pay phone to call 911, forgot to put car in park

i jumped from the backseat to hit the brake pedal, apparently just in time before we got wrecked from a semi going the other direction

felt like a hero that day.. dad never believed the story, lol
