I finally got my driver's license and wanted to get used to our one and only car that I've never driven before. So I went around the block a few times and smelled this awful burning rubber smell. Hubby came out when he saw me in front of the house and started yelling at me that I was driving with the emergency brake on. Ok, it was stupid but unintentional. I learned my lesson. He told me I burned his brakes out. I only went around the block maybe five times, doing right turns and k turns. Did I do any damage to the car? He said he won't get the brakes checked out until two weeks from now. Is it safe to drive the car? I need to get to Costco's like yesterday!
