In order to be able stop in time to avoid an accident, we must have properly maintained braking systems. An automotive braking system is used to inhibit the motion of the vehicle. There are several different types of braking systems and brakes that are typically applied to rotating axels or wheels.  These types of braking systems are typically divided into three categories. These categories are as follows:

It is common for an individual to need to use these braking systems and one point or another.  These systems are all intended to provide safety to those inside the vehicle and those in close proximity outside the vehicle, whether it is other vehicles or pedestrians.

Common Types of Service Brakes

Although there are many different types of brakes, there are a few common forms found in modern day automobiles.  These brakes are most commonly described as frictional, pumping, electromagnetic, servo, and hydraulic. However, there are many added components to assist in braking more smoothly and braking in different conditions and circumstances.

The Most Common Types of Brakes Include:

In some instances we may find that more than one of these types of brakes is used on a single vehicle. Some of these brakes work in unison with each other to create a stronger and more reliable braking system.  However, on occasion, these brakes may go out causing an injury to another individual.  If you have been injured in an automobile accident, we encourage you to contact us at Citrin Law Firm today.

Emergency and Parking Brake Systems

Emergency braking systems typically use levers and cables that are applied by a person’s mechanical force; in some newer vehicles a button can be pressed.  These braking systems usually bypass the normal service braking system in order to ensure the vehicle will come to a complete stop if there is a failure to the service braking system.

When the emergency brake is applied, the brake cable passes to the intermediate lever causing the force of the pull to increase passing to the equalizer.  The equalizer splits the cable into two, dividing the force in half and sending it to the two rear wheels to slow the vehicle down.

It is common for the emergency brake system to run directly to the brake shoes and bypass the hydraulic braking system.  This allows the emergency braking system to require no extra features to control the brakes.
