Your brakes should be inspected yearly and need to be on top your vehicle safety list.
When you start hearing a loud, screeching noise every time you apply the brakes, this means your brakes have worn out and need to be changed. If you feel that your vehicle pulls to one side while braking, this could mean that a brake hose has collapsed that causes calipers to move unevenly. This should therefore be fixed or replaced.
When you start to notice every time you brake, the pedal nearly touches the floor before actually engaging this means that your car is low on brake fluid. Also keep a look out if you have to apply extreme pressure to the pedal before brakes engage.
Your brakes should be inspected when brakes grab at the slightest touch to the pedal as well as when your brake pedal vibrates or pulses, even under normal braking conditions.
When you don’t notice the above but your brake light is illuminated on your vehicle’s dashboard, then this is a clear warning sign to check your brakes for any damage and in turn replace them with new ones brake pads.
Therefore every vehicle or motorbike driver should keep these points in mind for the safety of themselves and for the longevity of their driving performance.
