In road vehicles, the hand brake or emergency brake is a mechanism used to keep the vehicle securely motionless when parked.  A hand brake takes the form of a hand-operated lever and is normally located on the center console but can sometimes be found between the driver’s seat and the door. The handbrake applies the rear disc pads via a cable and is used when the car 
is parked to stop it rolling forwards or backwards.
