With fall comes wet weather and slick roads. When you drive through puddles, your brakes get wet. Make sure you drive slowly through the puddles. After you clear the puddle, apply gentle pressure to your brakes so you can air the brakes out and dry them off. If you come across another puddle or a pothole, don’t slam on your brakes. Coast through them, or slow down before you hit the puddle or pothole.
Pay attention to your brakes, especially when you drive downhill. Any constant pressure on your brakes can cause unnecessary wear. And remember, your tires are your car’s shoes. In order to work best, they need to have good tread, be in balance and road ready at all times!
