Yes that was indeed an interesting read! A bit off-topic but I was quite surprised (and pleased) to read that the electronic parking brake system actually detects if the car starts to roll with the brakes engaged, and if so it will immediately tighten the brakes further and repeats the process up to 3 times if the car is still rolling. I'd say this is probably much safer than manually applying the parking brake but I guess that depends on how much force you typically use to pull on the brake lever.
