It won’t matter at all how well your car runs if you can’t slow down enough to navigate a turn or avoid running into hazards on the road. Having a well-serviced braking system helps you control your stopping distance, but also gives invaluable peace of mind in addition to better control of the overall driving experience knowing you can brake late when needed.
