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

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.
