Brakes are the vehicles most important function. If you can’t stop, there is no point in driving, it’s a hazard to yourself and to others on the road. Brakes have becomes extremely efficient in today’s cars but also more complex. They are no longer simply brakes; they are a unit of the car. Meaning the car has to be in good operational condition or brake problems could ensue. An example would be a blown strut or shock; this will cause that corner of the vehicle to respond more violently and the rest of the car putting more stress on that wheel.
