Get Ready to Stop | Brakes

New Orleans area drivers need to make sure their brakes are in good repair.

Safety is on the minds of the folks at carsdirect.com these days. They point out that all new cars – even the most affordable – come with seven safety features these days: airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, child safety locks, brake assist, front disc/rear drum brakes that are also anti-lock on all four wheels.

“These braking systems are designed to prevent the tires from locking up during hard braking situations. This is important because this allows the driver to maintain steering control of the vehicle. By maintaining steering control, the driver can often steer clear of the approaching obstacle,” carsdirect.com explains.

The website adds, “In vehicles without antilock brakes, the tires will lockup during hard breaking conditions. Once the tires are locked, the vehicle will begin to slide and all steering control will be lost.”

Of course, antilock brakes (or any other brake, for that matter) are useless if they become worn out or otherwise don’t function. Not to make light of a potentially serious situation, but you don’t want to slide into the parking space at Saturday’s Zephyrs game.

The best way to avoid that is to bring your car to the New Orleans brake repair experts at Twin Tire and Auto Care. Twin Tire has been the trusted auto repair and tire service shop in the greater New Orleans area since 1973. Twin Tire has three convenient locations to serve you – Hammond, Harvey and Marrero.
