Vehicle: A car whose steering wheel locks hard to the right, and whose accelerator pedal sticks to the floor shortly after the ignition is turned on. The parking brake is the vehicular equivalent of a displacer beast; attempts to interrupt the high-speed circles by grabbing it will instead turn on the windshield wipers, or the hood latch, or the trunk lid.

(This came from a cold-medicine dream I had a few weeks ago; I found the "brake" just moments before my eyes popped open.)
