Forbid this to ever happen, but if the parking brake was accidently engaged at 20 mph, what would happen........besides a WRECK!

Wondering, is there is a over ride when the transmission is in 3rd gear? If not, sure is a poor place for a switch...Ex: microphone for two way jumps out of it's clip and falls on the switch, engaging it. Don't care to find out the hard way, if you know what I mean!

Had to jump in on this one.
Back in the day the early Gleaner M's had a faulty transmission and would lock up 2nd gear (which is also 4th). I guess several machines were literally stood on their nose before word got out to road them with the header as low as possible just in case.
I guess something stuck to me from that and I road with header low still today. I just raise for bridges etc.
