So basically due to injury in one of my legs, I have to reduce the strain on my legs for a few weeks.
Driving is not the issue but when in city and waiting for signals, I have to keep my legs on the brake to prevent the car from going forward or backward (neutral gear) due to inclinations and I do not want to keep pressing on the brake.
So What I do it using my hand brake to keep the car still.

Whats is the downside of it ?

Drive a Tesla and the problem is solved for you. If you have the Autopilot option, you really just need to get the car in gear when you get in and start off with some acceleration and you can control the rest of your journey mostly with your hands. The car accelerates, brakes and waits at traffic lights on its own. If you feel like doing the driving yourself, pushing the brake at a traffic light will put it in "Hold" mode, and a tap on the accelerator ("gas" sic) when the light is green will start it moving again.
I'm retired. There's a nap for that...
