Use Clucth instead of hand brake

Hand brake is fa rear tires which provides only 40% braking power so a vehicle can easily move in 1st gear while hand brake is applied...

answer, as said by Fayaz.
Hand brake is not for stopping a vehicle in motion. It is used only while parking along with the Engine brake or to assist hill climbing. You can adjust the tension of the hand brake.

Hi Kabir. Ideally the vehicle should not move with an handbrake on. You may have to get your vehicle checked for technical problem in handbrake. The vehicle does jerk forward slightly with handbrake-on but the engine shuts off immediately since it cant move forward.

No, I can't fully agree with the expert. You can drive with the parking brake on, especially in those vehicles with high engine power. The vehicle will give a warning light +/- beep sound. In small car there can be jerking while trying to drive with hand brake on, but still you can. As I already said, you have to check the tension of the handbrake cable system.
