Besides being a great financial responsibility, owning a car comes
with a legal responsibility that could affect the rest of your life.
Think about it — you are responsible for yourself and any
passengers in your car, the lives of other drivers on the road, and
and the safety of anyone walking on the road, crossing the road
or working on the road. You should also watch out for any kids
playing near or on the street, and even pets.
One of the best things we can do to ensure safe and defensive
driving is to keep your vehicle fit and safe. The Official Ministry of
Transportation (MTO) Driver’s Handbook clearly states that “it is
illegal to drive a vehicle in dangerous condition. A police officer or
Ministry of Transportation inspector can examine your vehicle, at
any time. If the vehicle is found to be unsafe, it may be taken off
the road until the problem is fixed.”
Unfortunately, far too many car owners make the conscious
decision to cut corners, or delay certain servicing requirements,
especially brake maintenance. Your brakes are one of the most
important safety elements of your car; their service should never
be neglected, postponed or ignored.
The great thing about brakes is that they always give you warning
signs before it is too late to replace, repair or service them — you
just need to pay attention when you are behind the wheel. Any
rattling, grinding or squealing sounds when you press on the
brake pedal mean that your brake pads are worn out and need to
be replaced immediately. Should you notice a delayed response
time, sponge pedal, or if your vehicle pulls to one side when you
brake, ask an auto repair shop to replace the old brakes ASAP.
Properly functioning brakes are key to safe performance and play a
crucial role in keeping everyone safe on the road. At the first sign of
brake trouble, reach out to Right Way Auto Repair in Hamilton, ON to
