Explanation:
The Czech equivalent of the English term "parking brake" is "manual brake" ("ruční brzda"). The two terms mean the same thing.

agree  Zenny Sadlon: I agree with the next comment on the difference of arrangments between stick shift and automatic cars. However, the "PARK" position of the automatic shifter is usually not refered to as any kind of brake. You just "shift to parking". So, I have to agree.

Explanation:
Jana asked, whether there is a difference between "parking brake" and a "hand brake", or is it the same thing? The answer is yes and no.
With "stick-shift" (manual European style shifting of gears), it is the same.
With automatic (automatic gear shifting, US style), there is a "parking gear" position as well as a hand brake.
