Brakes wear out over time requiring service. How long your brakes last is based on various things such as driving conditions, how you brake and other factors. For this reason, it is necessary to service your brakes regularly. Having properly functioning brakes in your vehicle is important not only for you and your passengers, but also for other motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and anyone in your path on the road.
Being able to slow down or stop is important. And in emergency stopping situations especially, you rely on your braking system. If any component of the braking system is not working properly, it becomes a safety hazard for many.
