Slamming on the brakes is bad for your car, and your co-pilot won’t appreciate it either. Universal Technical Institute’s education manager, Scott Keene, offers some hard truths on braking:

“Hard braking in itself won’t harm your vehicle. Antilock brake systems have virtually eliminated loss of control due to skidding … which used to lead to severe damage,” Scott Keene, education manager at Universal Technical Institute’s campus in Lisle, Ill., told “Continuous hard braking will accelerate tire-tread, brake-pad and rotor wear. Frequent application of the ABS motors and solenoid can lead to premature part failure or ABS malfunction.”, “If You Stop in These Cities, Be Ready to Stop!,” September 14, 2016
