Times have changed, and today’s vehicle braking systems has numerous different mechanisms working together to help you to stop and manoeuvre your vehicle in a controlled manner.

The vehicle braking system includes, a servo, master cylinder, brake fluid, brake calipers, disks, drums, pads and shoes. All the components are linked by a series of brake hoses and brake pipes containing brake fluid, so that when you press your brake pedal the vehicle slows down and stops. The rate at which your brakes reduce the vehicle speed is determined by the duration and the foot pressure applied to your brake pedal, and of course the condition of your braking system.
