Emergency Brakes

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man


Hey Bob,
I drove a car 50 to 100 feet at about 15 mph with the emergency brake on. Does this do any damage?

Jeff,
Well, the worst that could have happened is that you prematurely wore out your rear brakes, but if you only drove for 100 feet max, I would think that you should be okay.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
