Causes of Brake Malfunction
The fault behind defective brakes is not easy to assign. While manufacturer error is a relatively common issue when brakes fail, there are other common causes, such as:
- Improper installation
- Driver error
- Insufficient maintenance
- Brake line leaks or rust
- Defective pads, rotors, shoes, or drums
- Faulty brake component design
Truck drivers are better in touch with their vehicles than anyone else. If ever there is a sign of brakes or any other mechanical part of a vehicle not working appropriately, it needs to be repaired immediately in order to avoid catastrophe.
