I was at an intersection at one of our busy roads recently and spotted to my surprise a vehicle’s brake pad laying on the road in front of me. What a scary thought to think that may have fallen off a vehicle that you and I may be driving with. Surely that driver would know there’s a problem immediately as the brakes are not going to work properly. This is one of the basic things a car is checked for in a safety inspection. But be aware, as of July 1st 2016, the MTO has mandated a stricter more detailed inspection process for all inspection facilities to follow. It’s all in an effort to ensure the vehicles on our roads are reliable and safe which in the end is safer for everyone on our roads.
