ABOUT STOPPING DISTANCE!


Stopping distance is the distance you travel over the ground before your vehicle comes to a halt. Stopping distance takes into consideration the following:

  • 1.) Your reaction time, including how long it takes to move your foot from the accelerator to the brake pedal.

  • 2.) How long does your brake pedal move the hydraulic brake fluid from the master cylinder to the wheel cylinders & callipers?

  • 3.) How effectively are your brake pads and discs stopping the wheel rotating?

  • 4.) How effectively are your tyres at gripping the road surface?

  • 5.) How effectively are your shock absorbers at preventing wheel bounce?

  • 6.) Are your electronic Anti Lock Brake wheel speed sensors still working?

 

Highway Auto Brakes will always COST YOU LESS because we are not a franchise. The big name franchise garages pay the franchise owner a fee and that goes on your bill. Get a better job with a quality guarantee at HAE the trusted brake specialists at Rockhampton.

Brake failure contributes to fatal highway crash.


brake failure causes highway crash

There is more to stopping your car than pressing the brake pedal. There are many systems involved in bringing your vehicle to a stop. Tyre contact with the road is often the difference in stopping or crashing because braking is not about stopping the road wheel it’s all about controlled deceleration of the wheel and that takes in a number of brake control systems but again most important is the tyre condition and its ability to grip the road and prevent lockup.

There’s a lot more to the braking system than just brake pads; it’s vital that you get the entire system checked and maintained regularly to ensure you and your family travel safely. We recommend you check and service brake systems every six months to keep them in good working order. Maintenance and repair work on your brakes should always be carried out by a trusted brake professional.

A timely brake inspection will save you the expense of disc rotor replacements all for the meagre cost of a set of brake pads.

Brake failure is far reaching and involves many components, have your brakes checked now.


suspension wheel and brakes rockhampton I guess you’ve heard of brake pads and brake linings, these are the components that are subject to friction generated heat every time you press down on the brake pedal so it follows that these bits are subject to wear and need to be replaced from time to time.

Not so well known is the brake disc rotor although make of high grade metal is a fast wear component also. These are the principal components that must be inspected whenever your car goes in for a service so you would need to be able to trust the service shop mechanics with your life. There is more to putting the vehicle up on a hoist and having a quick look around as so many large shops do, their staff are on productivity inducements so the quicker they finish your job the bigger their bonus.

The larger the garage (like dealerships) the less personal this sort of thing becomes. Life is very personal, so find a small specialist brake and specialist servicing shop that has technicians skilled in electronics, mechanics and importantly accomplished diagnosticians who take a personal interest in the safety of you and your family. People you can talk to, people you know you can trust.
