In the event of a brake system failure, the emergency brake system uses __________ to stop the vehicle.

A
Explaination
Spring brakes use powerful springs to apply the brakes. Normally, air pressure in the brake chambers holds back the springs. Should air pressure drop too low because of a leak, the springs will apply the brakes and stop the vehicle. To apply the parking brakes, you release air from the brake chambers manually.
