What??The handbrake is positioned the furthest from the driver because Euro NCAP regulations state that in an emergency the passenger must have the ability to apply the handbrake.
Ive been in a couple of situations where i've narrowly avoid driving into the back of buses at roundabouts.. screaming to a halt in a cloud of tyre smoke simply because the person in the passenger was ignorant. They even had the nerve to laugh at me when i said that it was their fault we nearly died.
Just because they're a passenger doesn't mean they can't help out in near-death situations.
Yeehhh - it dumbfounded me as well ! ...What??
Yeeppp - you have a powerful imagination ...Complete rubbish. Yes. All made up. Obviously
