Brake Safety Awareness Month

June 20, 2018
Brake Safety Awareness Month

Everybody is talking about gas and fuel efficiency these days, but this August we're talking about Brake Safety Awareness. Keeping your car in good shape can prevent crashes and protect your investment, and brakes are one of the most important systems in a vehicle. We're encouraging consumers to learn the importance of a safe brake system and urging them to pull into a MAP participating facility to get their brakes checked during Brake Safety Awareness Month.

Throughout this event, the nation's leading consumer auto service non-profit organization the Motorist Assurance Program wants you to stop at any MAP participating repair shop for a brake and related undercar inspection. There's no better way to ensure that your vehicle's braking and other undercar systems are working properly before heading into the fall and winter driving seasons.

During Brake Safety Awareness Month, participating shops will offer inspections, educate vehicle owners regarding key undercar systems, provide complimentary automotive troubleshooting materials, and answer consumers' preventative maintenance questions.
