No. Unless you have cables wrapped around the brake pedal. With drum brakes, every time you reverse, the shoes are adjusted tighter. If you do a lot of reversing, they may be over-tightened this causing the lock up. If your front brakes are locking up, you may have gravel in the pads/caliper or the pads are toast and they're digging into the rotors
