I am wondering if it is necessary to use my emergency brake at all times that my car is parked. I know to use it when it's parked on a hill, as well as turn my tires toward the hill, depending if I am parked uphill or downhill. I have been told that using the parking brake takes pressure off the brakes. Thank you.

It wouldn't take pressure from the brakes, but it would from the transmission. Is it necessary? I would recommend it, but when you are on a flat surface, it would be okay to only use park.
