Brakes are one of the most important safety features on your vehicle yet they are often overlooked when it comes to maintenance and servicing. However, brakes should be checked regularly in order to avoid any potentially dangerous situations. 

In order for brakes to work effectively, they need to be in perfect condition every time you drive your vehicle. Brakes can wear out very quickly, especially if used frequently and under heavy traffic conditions. Using brakes less than necessary will not stop brakes from wearing out faster; brakes require regular use in order for them to be effective.

When brakes are overly worn out (wear and tear) their performance decreases which causes brakes to malfunction. This is especially common when brakes are used under hot conditions e.g., sitting in a traffic jam.

Brakes components

The main components of brakes include brake pads/shoes, discs, and callipers. All these parts work together to stop the vehicle at high speeds. Other important safety features such as ABS (anti-lock braking system) make it possible for brakes to work in an effective manner even if used incorrectly by the driver.

Brake repair and replacement is one of the many services offered at Ray Roach Service Center, and Auto Repair Garage in Saint John, NB.
