All vehicles are equipped with a secondary braking system known as emergency or parking brakes. Emergency brakes are independent of the service brakes and not powered by hydraulics. Parking brakes use cables to mechanically apply the brakes. Emergency brakes are most often used as a parking brake to help keep a vehicle stationary while parked. They are also used in emergency situations in case the other brake system fails.

Anti-Lock Brake


Computer- Controlled anti braking systems (ABS) is an important safety feature which is equipped on most newer vehicles. When brakes are applied suddenly, ABS prevents the wheels from locking up and the tires from skidding. The system monitors of each wheel and automatically pulses the brake pressure on and off rapidly on any wheels where skidding is detected.
