Parking Brake Up Turns Traction Control Off?

2009. Jiust bought the cobalt the first ofthis month and am very happy with it. But I notised when I pull up the parking brake, the display reads traction off and also shows the traction off light. Is this normal? Seems odd to turn off traction pulling up on the parking brake. Ill pull the parking brake one click to drive but the car starts beeping telling me the parking is up. I just dont get it.

This is normal. Traction is turned off when the parking brake is engaged, or you shift your automatic transmission into the LOW position (the furthest one from park).
