I have a brake used for parking. Some people (many self proclaimed drifters? or tuners?) think this is an "emergency brake"

The two reliable sources I know in automotives said the very LAST thing one uses in an emergency to brake is the parking brake, as they easily break under that stress- but it seems pretty common, amongst many people interested in automotives.
