A parking brake system is not required if your service brakes are fully functional?
In the UK the parking brake is called the handbrake, a motor vehicle must, by law, have at least two independent ways of applying the brakes. This is normally achieved on a car by having the foot brake hydraulically or, rarely, pneumatically operated and the hand brake cable operated.
Added: (in the US) you must also have an operational
parking (or hand) brake.
In Canada, at least, (and I strongly suspect in USA and Australia) that is wrong. You DO require a parking brake as an emergency standby. The point is your regular brakes depend on hydraulic fluid and rubber seals, while the parking or emergency brake depends on cables. -A totally separate system.
You also need the parking brake when parking the vehicle on an incline. The transmission park pawl may break causing the vehicle to roll off if you have no parking brake.

A parking brake system is not required if your service brakes are fully self-locking. Air brake systems (on semis, for instance) hold the brakes open only when air is supplied. If you blow the air the brakes lock under spring pressure. Read More

"Harley" gave an answer which showed why people who don't actually understand air brake systems should not be answering questions about them. When you cage an air brake, you are backing off that brake - this will render both the spring brakes and the service brakes inoperable. The service brake will not work 'just fine", because the arm from the brake chamber is backed off, which backs off the slack adjuster, which backs off the… Read More
It is a mechanical means of holding the vehicle from moving. The parking brake system is separate from the hydraulic service brakes. Read More
The parking brake on most vehicles uses a cable to operate part of the service brake to prevent the vehicle from moving while parked. In some instances the parking brake cable can stretch/break/freeze and not allow the cable to engage the service brake component (shoe or caliper).Mostly if the parking brake does not work, you can drive the vehicle normally and the brakes work fine. Possibly a parking brake may be partially engaged causing the… Read More

INITIAL ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE Be sure parking brake lever is fully released. Fully apply the vehicles service brakes 2 to 3 times by depressing the brake pedal as far as possible. This will cause the automatic adjuster mechanism to correctly adjust the rear drum brakes. Apply and release the park brake lever one time after the service brakes have been correctly adjusted. This procedure has correctly adjusted the vehicle's rear service brakes. Read More
On a T30 brake can, there are two chambers - the service chamber, and the emergency chamber. In the brake chamber, there is a spring.. when decompressed, it rotates the S-cam to lock the brakes. This is your parking brake. When you release the brakes, the emergency chamber remains constantly supplied with air to compress this spring, effectively releasing your brakes. The service chamber counteracts this, allowing you to utilize your brakes, but only when… Read More

Yes, but know that your parking brake on applies your rear brakes. For this reason it is very easy to cause your vehicle to slide sideways when applying only the rear brakes. Also the fact that your parking brake will lock due to the indents, you must use it wisely in an emergency. It also will take quite a long distance to stop any vehicle with the parking brake only.

You have hydraulic brakes and air brakes. Hydraulic brakes can be drum or disc. Air brakes can be drum, disc, or wedge. On a lot of medium duty trucks and RVs, the parking brake can be a shaft brake, mounted to the back of the transmission. Read More
They're not just on tractor-trailers - you'll find them on most air brake equipped vehicles. Spring brakes can be described as parking brakes. That's the simple answer. They are brakes which are held down by a spring. When air pressure is introduced into the system, via the service air system, the air pushes against those brakes, forcing the spring to compress, and releasing the brakes. The air pressure must remain constant in order for the… Read More

If you mean that the rear brakes won't work or that the parking brake won't release, it's probably because they are wet and the ice is keeping the parts from moving. If it's the parking brake, dry everything out then lube the cable. If the rear brakes aren't working, make sure the brakes are dry when you park for the night. Read More
