When driving you can actually stop the car by pulling the park brake switch (and holding it). When you pull the park brake it will apply the cars brakes (front and rear) and bring the car to a quick stop. It's an emergency feature should the driver go into a situation were he cannot operate the vehicle anymore, then the passenger can perform an emergency stop by using the park brake (you need to pull it until the car has stopped - otherwise it disengages the brakes again)!

(Just try it)
Will this damage the car in any way? I've always been weary of using the park break while the car is in motion.
