While car breaks are not designed to go out, they sometimes break down for a variety of reasons. When this occurs, the driver should not attempt to drive the car to a dealership, but get the car towed to a mechanic.
If the brakes break down while a driver is driving, then the driver will often panic, and this panic could lead to a serious accident. Instead of panicking, the driver should first attempt to use the emergency brake to stop the car.
If the emergency brake does not work, then the driver should search for an uphill stretch of road or area that might stop the car.
