Handbrake turn? I thought I’d use it next time…

The runaway car earlier. Picture from Shout Out: Chippenham

THERE was confusion and more than just mild peril in Chippenham today when a car ran away on Station Hill because its handbrake apparently wasn’t applied.

A picture of the car was posted at the foot of the hill, coned off so traffic could get around, on Facebook page Shout Out: Chippenham

Never leave the car parked without leaving it in 1st gear and the handbrake on cos if it fails it ain’t going anywhere – basic car knowledge folks lol,” posted Erin Lisa Santoro.

Cracking advice… just remember to slip it back into neutral before you turn that key!
