guide sign
step hard on the brake (pedal)
handbrake
to cut in front of... (I slammed the brakes on as the other car cut in in front of me)

And that's a nice picture about car parts. I'm afraid it's American English but I couldn't find something so detailed in British English.



Interesting expressions:
