Winter Braking

Winter Braking

Winter is a strange time of year; we can have long spells of dry weather, followed by rain and storms. The weather means we need to be more aware of the driving conditions than at other times of the year. Being able to stop effectively in an emergency or being able to safely drive around slippery roads is essential.

In an emergency, you need to know that you can rely on your brakes to slow the car and your tyres to retain the grip needed to control your stop. Did you know that your tyres only have the equivalent of a palm print size area touching the road at any one time? That is not a lot of surfaces to slow the weight of your car.

If you would like to know if your car is safe, please feel free to call into the workshop. We can check your tyres and access your brakes. If you need repairs done, we can also give you quote for doing the work for you.

Winter is a dangerous time on the road. Make sure that you are safe by calling into the workshop for a brake and tyre check.
