Brake Checks on line

5 October 2007

According to Safe Brakes eighty-five percent of motorists don’t know how to check their own brake discs and pads for safety. Most motorists wait until they are alerted by a brake warning light on the dashboard. Many vehicles don’t have a brake warning light and those that do often fail to alert until brakes are well in to the danger zone.

A new website has been designed to help motorists check and replace their own brake discs and pads. There’s also a live online brake expert to answer questions about performance brake discs on the new website. Visitors to the site who choose to upgrade to performance brake discs have the chance to buy brake pads at half the normal price too – visit www.safe-brakes.co.uk
