About 5 or 10 years ago, I pulled up at the testing station for my MOT* pulled on the handbrake ... and the cable snapped. Also many naughty words ...

* MOT is the compulsory annual vehicle check in the UK for all vehicles over three years old to ensure roadworthiness. It used to check you had tread on your tires, the lights worked, and your brakes were capable of stopping you - but it's been expanded to the point where you can fail for having a missing dust cap on your spare tire, or a dashboard light that doesn't come on or go off at the right time.
