English term or phrase:parking brake
Is there a difference between "parking brake" and a "hand brake", or is it the same thing?
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.
