Select proper Gear
According to the Highway Traffic Act, all motor vehicles must have a parking brake in good working order. When a vehicle is stationary, the parking brake should be fully set in the “ON” position.
The applicant should set the gearshift in the Park position in vehicles with an automatic transmission. For standard transmission vehicles, the gearshift should be in either reverse or a low gear. The choice depends on whether the vehicle is parked on an upgrade or a downgrade.
