A Sad Case......

Parking your car on a slope has a potential danger that must be prevented.

If your hand-brake fails or your parking gear is not engaged, your car will roll down the slope and this case had tragic consequences.

No one knows when a hand-brake will fail or when you will forget to engage the brake properly.

You need to take this extra precaution when parking on a slope. When you park, always turn your wheels towards the curb so that your car will be stopped by the curb if it rolls. If there is no curb prop a brick or stone against the tire so that the car will not roll much.

It is simply too dangerous to try and stop a car once it has gained momentum.
