It’s important to keep your brakes in top working condition. The brake system of your vehicle is by far the most important safety system that it has. Being able to slow down or stop at a moment’s notice will help to avoid an incident or accident. Improperly working brakes will not do the job they are designed to do and will not be as effective when needed, especially in a panic stop situation. To avoid wearing them down you should never ride your brakes and always give yourself time to brake instead of stopping abruptly. Front brakes usually wear out faster than rear brakes so have them looked at every 6 months.
