We all know that your car’s brakes are responsible for slowing it down and stopping. But, many people don’t know a lot more than that or understand how a car’s braking system works. All vehicles on the road these days use a similar braking system, with hydraulics translating your foot’s force on your brake pedal into stopping power in the form of friction. Each wheel has its own disc or drum brake. Discs create friction by using that hydraulic force to press a brake pad into a spinning disc to slow it down. Drum brakes involve pushing a brake shoe into a spinning drum to cause the friction needed for stopping. Your car also has an “anti-lock braking system”, or ABS, involving a computer that won’t let you brake hard enough to skid, lose control, or slide into the car in front of you. All of these systems must be working properly together to ensure you’re able to bring a vehicle weighing as much as 2 or 3 tons to a stop reliably.
Using your emergency brake on inclines reduces stress on the parking linkage.
