While waiting for the signal, can i put the car in stop mode till the signal changes just by using the hand brake?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Brandy Schaffels, Editor at, Inc. I wouldn't recommend this, as it's not how your hand brake is intended to be used and is likely to cause premature wear or damage. Putting your foot on the brake in an automatic, or shifting into neutral with a manual AND keeping your foot on the brake, are sufficient to keep the car at rest when stopping at a signal.
