This year’s CVSA focused on the need for more education for brake technicians, as well as for drivers and manufacturers.
The following examples show the various systems associated with brakes that may experience dangerous failures.
This tour of offbeat vehicles with braking issues shows that there is no limit to the number of problems that can occur, or the types of manufacturers that need to be careful.
The following three brake issues led to either huge recalls or high fines.
From cars to motorcycles and Germany to the U.S., brake recalls are a worldwide constant.
