Re: How many of you have a functioning emergency brake?

My E-brake saved my butt in the C-20. I knew the brakes were real bad, but I "had" to drive it home from the shop in the snow. What I didn't know was the brakes were so bad it was impossible to stop on ice.

So here I'm heading toward a stop sign against a busy four lane highway. It's not slowing down, not even a little bit. I steered toward the curve when I thought to hit the E-brake. Close one.
