  • Also, you should not use the handbrake system to slow down the car. This hack is also not effective, as it can lead to damage to the brake system and other parts of the car;
  • Using balls in the beverage compartment to prevent items from tipping over. This advice is not safe. Balls can cause airbags to become trapped in the event of an accident and cause serious injury to passengers;
