Abstract

A moving vehicle must be able to be brought quickly to rest by its brakes. Most cars have two braking systems; one which works on all four wheels and is operated by a foot pedal; and one which operates on the rear wheels only and is operated by a hand lever; this is the parking brake (or handbrake).
