August is Brake Safety Awareness Month, and we wanted to provide car owners with some basic information about brake maintenance. Properly maintained brakes are critical to car safety. Brake functionality can be affected by driving conditions, driver habits, quality of brake system materials, and type of vehicle. Driving conditions are unpredictable in many cases, and routine brake maintenance can prevent tragedy. Vehicle brake systems experience normal wear and tear and regular maintenance can assist with addressing problems early.
A good auto tech can answer your questions about brakes and ensure that your vehicle is properly maintained. Brake Safety Awareness Month is a great time to get educated on brakes and to have your brakes inspected. To that end, check out Mighty’s consumer education video on “When Should I Have the Brakes Checked?”
Vehicle maintenance doesn’t have to be a mystery, and it doesn’t have to break the bank. Although brake maintenance isn’t often talked about, one of the best things owners can do to keep their vehicles safe is ensuring the brakes are properly maintained.
