Brakes are in use more often when driving around town and on short journeys rather than on a motorway journey. Also not forgetting that you may need to use your brakes to stop your vehicle quickly and safely in an emergency. This is why it is so important that you maintain an effective vehicle braking system for your vehicle.
We the people who's vehicle covers 10,000 miles or greater in a given year, have their braking system checked twice a year. These checks would be carried out on the vehicles MOT and the second at the vehicles scheduled service.
Good driving ethics and cautious driving can increase the life of your vehicle’s brakes.
How Brakes Work
The majority of vehicles today are equipped with front and rear disc brakes. These are operated via a system that consists of a hydraulic circuit which is linked in turn to the brake pedal. Pressure generated by the pedal (the braking force) is transmitted by the brake fluid via the hydraulic circuit to perform the braking action.
