Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) Hosts Brake Safety Awareness Month
August 1 - August 31
When it comes to vehicle and motorist safety, one of the most important systems on your vehicle are your brakes. The Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) is bringing awareness to this critical vehicle system by declaring August Brake Safety Awareness Month™. August is a great time to think about your vehicle’s brakes, with many families wrapping up the summer with a road trip, sending kids off to school and the increase in vehicle use with outdoor activities. Ensuring the braking system functions properly confirms safety and peace of mind to the motorist. “Many people have chosen to travel by vehicle this summer as many do not feel comfortable with air travel due to the pandemic. We encourage all motorist to have their vehicle inspected during the month of August and to learn proper brake system care and vehicle maintenance” said Jeff Cox President of the Automotive Maintenance and Repair Association. Most brake inspections will include measuring the thickness of the friction material, inspection of the brake fluid, checking for leaks along with a visual inspection of the brake system components. By having your braking system inspected, potential issues can be identified before it affects your safety.
We encourage all members to participate in Brake Safety Awareness Month™ this August. Below you can download all the materials to get started.
