Don’t Be An Annoying Late Breaker!

  • Friday, Nov 8th, 2019

The blog this week is about avoiding bad driving habits that you may not even be aware that you are doing or realise the damage it is doing to your car. Read below to see one of the bad driving habits we have all probably done at some point in our driving lives:

Brake lights

We all know someone whose driving style is to brake too late regularly, maybe you are one of them! Not only is it uncomfortable for passengers and frightening for other road users, it will cost you a lot more money having to replace your pads, discs and tyres quicker than normal because of the additional strain your driving style puts on these parts . Your brakes shouldn't be applied suddenly and heavily, unless you are of course performing an emergency stop. Having this type of driving style will also cost you more money for fuel too! So do yourself a favour, adopt a slower and more considered approach to your driving style, anticipating the road ahead. This will be much better for your Volvo or Toyota and the environment. Happy Motoring Folks!
