Many accidents are caused by faulty or poorly maintained brakes often resulting in injury or costly insurance claims. Your vehicle will also fail its MOT if braking efficiency is below specification.
We all know that your braking system is what stops your car safely and that regular inspection and maintenance is important. The rate at which your brakes reduce the vehicle speed is affected by the condition of your vehicle’s braking system. It’s therefore essential that your vehicle’s brakes are kept in top condition whether you’re driving around town or regularly use the motorway.
Brake checks can identify a problem before it affects your braking ability and provides an opportunity to optimise the effectiveness of your braking system. If you have any concerns about the brakes on your vehicle, for instance unusual noises or vibration when braking or excessive brake pedal travel, it is vital to get this checked without delay.
Your tyres are the only thing between your vehicle and the road - ensuring their condition is well maintained is vital to your vehicle’s efficiency and your safety.
Increased wear can lead to reduced grip and handling as well as having a serious impact your vehicle’s stopping distance. By regularly checking your tyres AGP will ensure your vehicle is road-safe and legal, and help you to avoid any unnecessary points and fines.
