There’s no denying that the braking system is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. You never know when you may need to stop in an emergency, so regular maintenance is absolutely crucial.
Like all vehicle components, the braking system and its performance can deteriorate over time. This can happen gradually, and many motorists may not even realise anything is wrong. So, by having your car brakes checked regularly, you could find that it saves you a significant amount of time and money by preventing further damage to other components of your vehicle.
Today, the braking systems in most modern cars and vans use brake discs and pads. The brake pads feature a material that, when pressed against the disc, produces friction when the brake pedal is applied. This slows the wheels down and eventually stops them turning. Over time, the friction can cause the material on the brake pad to wear down and prevent it from working effectively. In addition to this, the brake discs can become warped and pitted, making it harder for the brake pad to ‘grab’ the surface of the disc and slow the car down. As a result, it’s vital to ensure that your brakes are operating at an optimum level at all times in order to stay safe when you’re behind the wheel.
