How to make your Brakes Last

How to make your Brakes Last
 
If your brakes usually wear down quickly, it might be a good idea to change some of your driving habits to make sure they last longer. Not only will this save you money, but it will also keep you safer by having brakes that are fresher.
 
The faster you travel, the harder you will have to slam on your brakes when coming to a stop. If you obey the speed limit and don’t travel at high speeds, you won’t wear out the brakes as much.
 
It’s very important that you learn how to anticipate by anticipating the traffic ahead and being cognizant of lights and stop signs. This will allow you to slow down well ahead of time, so you can gradually come to a stop rather than slamming on the brakes because you weren’t paying attention.
 
Whenever possible, you should coast instead of constantly speeding up and slowing down. The less you use your brakes, the longer they will last.
 
Finally, if you know there are certain spots on your daily commute where drivers ahead typically slow down, you should decrease your speed ahead of time so you’re not stuck slamming on your brakes like the other drivers surrounding you.
