On my car, the hand brake applies the same brakes on the rear as the brake pedal would apply. My handbrake snapped and shortly later, one of my callipers seized up and destroyed my brake disc and pads. The two aren't related but they use the same part of your car.

Not sure where #14 shops, but even our most expensive pads at advance are less than $80. Depending on the vehicle you can replace every pad, rotor, caliper, line and the master cyl. for less than $400.

I've spent around $400 on brakes, but they were huge aftermarket rotors and calipers, essentially race car brakes for the street. loved them, but as replacement brakes, and not an upgrade, you'd be looking at much much less, obviously

Honestly after the first couple of times I don't think I would have allowed her to drive my car without signing a damage waiver... I'm sorry that happened but she really needs to take responsibility for what she did and the damages that accrued.

See, this i didn't know! Thanks! :) not familiar with the inner workings of my car besides jumping it and filling up with gas. End of knowledge right there.

also in saying that, if something did happen while it was there with no hand brake on and it rolled back into a car or house, you'd be in a bit of trouble, if it rolled back with the hand brake on then you might get away with it on a mechanical fault (provided you could prove you had no knowledge of the fault)

Parking pawls sure do take a lot of abuse up here. However, most park brake cables are rusted solid right from the dealership. Our roads are paved with salt.

Your mother should be paying for it, OP. If she can't afford it then you should leave a sticky note on the steering wheel reminding her to take off the emergency brake :)
