The automatic trucks have the exact same parking brake as the manuals. Sounds like you didn’t test your parking brake during pretrip. Seems more of a failure on your part. Shoulda been apologetic. After all you let it roll away

Maybe you can read this clearly, since you clearly do not know how to apply an ebrake in ANY vehicle...your a dumb___ then to top it off you wanted to argue about it..move on you are done...forever.
