Not only are rough braking habits tough on the braking system and tires, these poor habits can be dangerous and lead to premature brake repair. However, smooth braking tips can help preserve your vehicle's brakes and tires, and increase the safety of your driving. Unfortunately, many accidents are caused by a mechanical failure from lack of brake repair.

Of course, it is important to pay attention at all times for safe driving, but especially when braking! Here are a few smooth braking suggestions to consider:

** Upon approaching a stoplight or sign, resist braking rapidly at the last second. Because cars today have anti-lock braking systems, there is a pulsation that occurs when the brakes are depressed. The driver can feel this with their feet, so they must be careful to keep the pressure applied instead of reacting to the pulsation they feel. Sometimes, the left foot can be used to stabilize your body, but the timing must be so that the brakes are not applied too hard. This is done to prevent slipping--and a premature visit to your brake repair shop.

** Try to keep the car in a straight line as you brake. Hold the wheel steady to prevent sudden steering wheel turns. Cars with ABS are designed to keep the car steady without the need for steering help from the driver during sudden braking. This frees the driver up to concentrate on staying straight while the ABS engages.

** If you have to slam on the brakes out of necessity, keep control of the car as much as possible. If traction is lost and control of the car is at stake, turn into the skid. Turning away from the skid causes overcompensation, swerving and finally complete loss of control. Remember to stay alert and be calm to avoid these potential disasters in the first place.
