Today – Why your brakes really need checking
I took my first driving test in Essex about 28 years ago. At the time I was at University down in Colchester and the roads were very busy. There was a whole lot of stopping and starting. Local driving is so much easier if your car is in tip-top condition and I always made sure my car and especially my car brakes were well maintained.
When it comes to safety in the car, your brake system is your best friend. It is important to know the signs of failing brakes so that you can have them repaired immediately in order to keep you and your passengers safe. It’s important to check your car brakes for safe driving locally in areas like Billericay, Brentwood or Basildon. Effective braking can make a big difference between a serious accident and driving away without a scratch.
I urge you to get your brakes checked regularly especially if you have any concerns at all. It is not a risk worth taking. I always think having a reliable garage in Essex to service your car and your car needs matters a lot. For example, if you need brakes at competitive rates in Billericay- check out Jet Wheel Tyre.
Have you ever been in a car when your brakes have failed? This terrifying incident happened to me once, years ago in a friend’s car in the US. I have honestly never been so scared in my life. We rolled into a bank eventually and luckily weren’t going very fast but there could have been a very serious accident. She hadn’t had her brakes checked in ages it turned out and apparently she ‘thought they didn’t seem right!’ she said later. She could have got us killed. It was just irresponsible.
