When it comes to safety, your brake system is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. Pressing on the brake pedal will cause your brake pads to squeeze the brake rotor and create friction. This friction is what slows the vehicle and why brakes pads are an important replacement part to keep your car safe.

Most modern cars have brakes on all four wheels, operated by a hydraulic system. This brakes may be disc type or drum type.

We all know that pushing down on the brake pedal slows a car to a stop. But how does this happen? How does your car transmit the force from your leg to its wheels? How does it multiply the force so that it is enough to stop something as big as a car?
