Agree completely. It baffles me when I see people who should know better, not setting the parking brake before releasing the brake pedal on automatics, particularly on any sort on uneven surface. If you choose to call it an "emergency brake" and make that argument, it might not be much help in an emergency if you never use it and keep it freed up.

Subject: Re: [Chrysler300] Setting the parking brake . 64 300
On any car, vintage or modern, I always set the parking brake unless on completely level surfaces, such as in my garage.
It really bothers me when I see people shove the car in park and then let it roll a bit until the pawl engages. Puts too much stress on the pawl.
By using the parking brake regularly, it never corrodes in place to the point where it can't be used. Of course, with the early 300s with no park position, it must be used. And even then, as Dave Schwandt said, having a wheel chock handy is a good idea.
