Give us a brake – check your fluids as well as your fuel levels

A survey by RED Driving School has found that British drivers inspect their vehicles’ brake fluid, oil and coolant less than once a week, thereby compromising engine life and safety. According to the Highway Code, brake fluid should be checked at least once a week if not more often. Given that drivers constantly check their fuel gauges to see how much diesel or petrol they have in the fuel tank, surely they could check their oil and brake fluid so as not to break down or cause damage (which could be more costly than fuel) and not put other road users at risk because impaired brakes make them unable to stop safely?
