Don't neglect your brakes! Brakes are your lifelines on the road, ignore them and you might be in a lot of trouble.. Pictured is a comparison between fresh and worn out pads. No guessing which is which. See the lines on the new pads? Similar to tyres, these lines are what we call "wear markers". These lines also have another function: to cool the pads/discs. When travelling, air runs in between, cooling them, much like how slotted and drilled rotors work. So when you see these lines disappear, don't wait till you wear them down till the pad's backing plate. Get them replaced! We can't even start to imagine what would happen in an emergency situation when your brakes fail!
