The locking brakes immediately threw the car into a skid. It rolled over and hit a bank.

Wells Fargo? Citibank? Or like a local place that gives 2% interest harvest loans to farmers? What are we talking about here? How angry should I be?

This text is now purple: Would pulling the handbrake do anything at highway speeds, besides causing a bad smell?


"Which doesn't say much for me, but it also doesn't say much for the 'Emergency Brake'! I think they should call it the 'make the car smell funny lever'!

Yeah, which is weird because you'd expect that be more of a gas pedal thing.

Probably front wheel drive, so hand brake locks rear wheels (no engine to keep them spinning), driver panics and starts braking but the loose back end swings around due to decreased traction.

With a rear drive car this wouldn't happen as the engine would prevent the brakes from locking .


This is this most technical response to a fart joke I've ever read.

"State police at York reported Monday that, on Jan. 23, Charles Joline III started arguing with his 18-year-old girlfriend while she was driving on Route 74 in Peach Bottom Township.
Joline got so angry he reached over and pulled the emergency brake lever while the car was going 50 to 60 mph, Trooper Timothy Reynolds said."

Was the car a rental?  If so, that's how you get your money's worth for the extra insurance.

So many pedals. What kind of piano is that?


Silly person. It's a Wurlitzer organ not a piano. You can tell by the pattern on the pedals you Noob.

It was hard for him when he found the bodies of his Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru.

It's the emergency "make the car smell bad" lever.

Yeah I missed the joke too....  I was thinking burning rubber.

Same here. Was it supposed to allude to pulling a finger?


You see, he was talking about the brake causing a bad smell and then I said something about the "gas" pedal because, you see, farts are .....oh never mind.

Not if you're going in a straight line.  One of my brothers used to do it to me all the time, although usually only on wet roads so it didn't chew up the tires.

It sure won't, by itself, cause a car to flip.  There needs to be something else involved, like, say, sliding off the road and over a bank.

ZAZ: Thanks for the stock photo of what a handbrake looks like, for the young people who have never seen a car with anything but a button that doesn't do anything obvious and nobody presses anyway.

arrested the next day on charges of ... risking a catastrophe

The law prohibits "catastrophe by explosion, fire, flood, avalanche, collapse of building, release of poison gas, radioactive material or other harmful or destructive force or substance, or by any other means of causing potentially widespread injury or damage." I guess to that list we can add, "causing a car crash if police don't like you."


Intentionally causing a car crash that could have affected multiple vehicles then fleeing the scene.  Yeah, it's totally because the police don't like him.
