A car leaving full beam on can be dangerous. Being behind someone with their brake lights on can be irritating if it bothers you. Have to say it's never bothered me. I do use my handbrake when I'm going to be stopped for a period of time but that's more so I don't have to keep my foot on the brake. Didn't even realise folk might be effected by my brake lights.My driving instructor didn't mention it, but the first time I was sat behind someone with their brake lights blinding me, I made sure never to do that myself. It's as bad as leaving full beam headlights on!
Have you tried leaving it in drive and just putting the handbrake on? I've seen another thread from a couple of years ago asking the same question, this time in a Corsa, and the conclusion was the same. Perhaps it's just a Stellantis thing, but it's got to be worth trying.
Hi all, Sorry if this seems like a bit of an odd questions. I'm just wondering what everyone does when waiting at a stop light. Do you keep your foot on the brake, or engage the park mode, or even the EPB (electronic parking brake)? I'm coming from having a manual transmission with a manual...www.speakev.com
