I was giving a parking lot demo of the Comfort Drive steering system in my Kountry Star when the lady driver couldn't stop and wouldn't turn before running over the curb and through a chain link fence. I had to pull the park brake before anything expensive happened. It turned out she was pushing on the hinge of the brake treadle with her toes (and high heels!). I'm not saying this was your problem. You just brought back the memories.

that's a good story. I applied it to my braking technique and sure enough, a little leverage makes a difference.
thanks
