We’re supporting Road Safety Week, which takes place from November 21, and are offering free brake checks for car, van and motorbike users.
The aim of Road Safety Week is to raise awareness about road crashes and casualties, and how we can make our roads and communities safer.
During the week, we will be offering motorists free brake checks. Surprisingly brakes are sometimes overlooked by drivers as they can be trickier to check than other areas, such as the oil or tyres. However, keeping your brakes in good condition should be a priority as they play a vital role in the safety of your vehicle.
Some vehicles have brake sensors, which give off a high-pitched sound as the pads get too thin. Alternatively, if you hear a metal grinding on metal sound you should get your brakes seen to as soon as possible as it is likely the pads have worn out.
Road Safety Week is in its 20th year and is coordinated by the charity Brake, which aims to prevent road death and injury as well as caring for people bereaved or injured in road crashes.
We will be offering motorists free brake checks during Road Safety Week, which takes place from Monday, November 21 until Saturday, November 26, during normal opening hours.
