What happen if the driver suddenly hit the brake?
Cause the Brake Pads to Overheat
If you suddenly hit the brakes after driving at a high rate of speed, it creates stress on the suspension and creates excess heat. If your brakes overheat, the pads will deteriorate faster and warp the rotors.
What happens when the driver of a car slams on the brakes?
When you push on the brake pedal, brake fluid travels through the brake hoses and converts your “push” into energy that brings the car to a stop. The heat and pressure generated when slamming on the brakes can cause tears and cracks in the hoses. Such damage can result in fluid leaks that eat away at your brake pads.
What is it called when someone breaks in front of your car?
Brake checking is a maneuver in which a driver intentionally hits the brakes, often forcing the following driver to also brake or take evasive action. It generally happens in a road rage or aggressive driving incident and is not an approved driving maneuver. It could also be a means of committing insurance fraud.
