Such reception provides course stability of the car even on slippery sites of roads and, besides, promotes economy of fuel, increases a resource of tyres and brake overlays.

Skilled drivers, irrespective of presence of additional stoplights, expecting possibility of application of working brakes, preliminary pedals of a brake before operation of lamps of stoplights some times concern to pay attention of drivers, moving behind it to be ready to decrease in speed.

The brake way depends on reliability of action of the most brake system, a condition of a protector of tyres, congestion of the car, a profile of road, type and a condition of a road covering, and also from speed of the car. The brake way increases proportionally to a square of speed, i.e. If speed increases twice, the brake way increases four times.

If at the serviceable suspension brackets, the adjusted corners of installation of forward wheels and normal pressure of air in tyres at braking the car withdraws aside and it is necessary for you доворачивать a wheel to keep a movement direction, it is necessary to spend audit of working brakes.

Sitting down for the first time to a wheel of other car, check up on a free site of road work of brakes on speeds 40, 60 and 80 km/h that is necessary for an estimation of a condition of brakes and acquisition of the first skill.

In avoidance "прикипания" brake колодок to drums do not put the car on long parking with the included lay brake.

That brake Pads have not frozen to drums after movement on wet roads at sharp fluctuations of temperatures, do not leave the car on the open area with the tightened lay brake, without having dried a brake smooth braking at movement to parking.
