I don't care how many times you've gotten away with it. I've gotten away with stupid shit too but that doesn't mean it wasn't stupid dangerous shit. Brakes work by friction. Any foreign material reduces this friction. You share the road with other people. Mmmkay?
I totally and 100% agree with you.

But the car will be driven it's pulled out of storage and he makes perfect sense on what he is saying. Can't get a any simpler than this. Really don't put anything on them, it's just bad bad bad IMO. If your really concerned just google car "what should you do to store a car" and where ever you look I'm certain it won't say anything about putting stuff on the brakes. If you find something that does then please post it here.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
