Mercedes Benz doesn't come with a parking brake? This seems like the perfect use case for such an item or is this just another Darwin award recipient?

Having never been on a ferry with my car I may be missing something, but wouldn’t you put your car in park and turn it off? I also use my parking break every time I park my car. This whole thing sounds off.

Use your parking brake every single time. It's hard on your tranny if you dont.

Well it looks like only a canvas barrier at the back to stop a car rolling off so it was an accident waiting to happen.
