This is another reason to keep you Parking Brake in Top Shape!
In extreme situation when you have Total Hydraulic Failure, the Parking Brake is the ONLY "Last Line of Defense"!

In this thread, this E39 car just kept going and going (I assume a Total Brake System Failure). Don't know the exact cause but this was what happened!
