Participating Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) member service facilities are hosting free brake safety inspections during Brake Safety Awareness Month. Across the country, during the month of August, many member facilities will help teach local drivers about proper brake system safety and maintenance.
The free brake safety awareness inspections will offer motorists a free check of the thickness of their brake pads and linings, plus an opportunity to learn proper brake system care and vehicle maintenance.
Industry research shows most drivers do not know enough about proper brake system care. This free brake care event will help drivers become more aware of the importance of checking their brakes.
“We welcome all drivers to come and learn firsthand about proper brake system and vehicle care,” said Joe Henmueller, MAP president. “And, August is a perfect time to have your car’s brakes inspected. In a few weeks, the back-to-school driving routine begins. Soon, Mom and Dad are either shuttling students with full schedules, or maybe sending their teenager off to college in an older family vehicle. Then, before you realize it, the holidays and winter are lurking around the corner. Checking brake condition and ensuring brake safety now offers peace of mind.”
