You decided to get out of the house for a bit by visiting the Farmer’s Market yesterday. It was good to get out and to get some fresh veggies. Trouble was, on your way home, your brakes failed. Luckily, you weren’t going fast and you were able to pull over to the side of the road.
Having your brakes fail is probably one of the most frightening things that can happen to a driver. If it happens to you, defensivedriving.com says your response should depend on whether you have regular brakes or anti-lock (ABS) brakes.
“If you have anti-lock brakes, you should practice sudden stops on both dry and wet pavement in a safe off street situation,” defensivedriving.com says. “When using anti-lock brakes the rule of thumb is to press the pedal all the way to the floor. You will feel a strong vibration in the pedal which is a sign that the ABS is working properly.”
If you have regular brakes, defensivedriving.com said there’s a three-step process to stopping: 1. Downshift to a lower gear. 2. Pump your brakes to build up fluid pressure. 3. Slowly apply the parking brake.
Brakes can fail for many reasons. For example, you are low on brake fluid because of a leak or your brake pads are worn. Your best defense against brake failure is regular maintenance during which an auto repair technician checks your brakes. Your second best defense is to listen and feel. If your brakes start making funny noises or your brake pedal starts sinking, then it’s time to see that trusted auto repair technician to find out what’s wrong and fix it before your brakes fail.
