I always find it a bit tricky driving a rental car. Things are located in different places, the car has a different "road feel"... I grew up with it being called an "emergency brake" so I guess I wouldn't have had your problem. However, I've had a number of issues with the design in my 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan... The parking/emergency brake release is the same kind of release and located just below the hood latch release. So sometimes I think I've taken off the parking brake and I've only popped my hood! (hood = bonnet for you, dear)

Ah well not to worry. As in the USA the bonnet is the hood and the boot is the trunk, do you end up with a
"Car Trunk Sale" instead of a "Car Boot Sale"?

Actually, a "car boot sale" is a "garage sale" or "yard sale" in the US. I didn't know the term "car boot sale" until a number of years ago. Even when I looked up it up in a British-American dictionary, it still mystified me. The folks in my neighborhood who try to sell you something out of their car trunk are trying to sell stolen goods.

Great Site! I have been looking around for informative sites so I can get an idea what a good website or blogs looks like! I think the more information the better it is! What do you think of my newest Lens! Great work, Rob
