It's fairly straightforward to make the wheels turn to nearly 90-degree. Since they are not driven (not power to them), there are no axles/universal-joint to bind.

As for the rear, it's quite possible to use what's called a cutting brake, which is in effect 2 independently actually parking brakes. Instead of having one pedal or handle that is split to both wheels, 2 handles are used, one to each side. That's fairly common in sandrails (aka "dune buggies").
