Whilst driving on our roads there are many different things that can go wrong with your car. This can be from the simple thing like running out of screen wash or getting a puncture, or to your car breaking down when you least expect it. Having said that any time you break down is never a good time. So be sure to join a breakdown recovery organisation, there are many to choose from weather its a larger company like the AA or the RAC or a local company to where you live. This will give you peace of mind when you are traveling long distances. Break downs can happen at any time, and never a good time !
The worst of all !
To have your brakes fail when you are driving is about as bad as it gets. To help avoid this ever happening you need to always remember to check your brakes each time you start your journey, however small the drive will be. The first test you should do is try the brakes before you even start the engine, your brakes should feel nice and firm and the pedal should not feel soft or spongy, this is something you will feel right away if you check before starting the engine. Then after you move off check them again, we are not saying carry out an emergency stop, but make sure you use them after you move off to make sure they are working and stop your car promptly and also pull you up in a straight line. If the car pulls to the left or right you could have defective brakes on either side or possibly even a puncture as this will affect how the brakes will work.
