Lexington is full of charm and has plenty of scenic routes. Unfortunately, though, car crashes can still happen even in the most picturesque locations. In Kentucky, about 800 people die in car accidents each year, as reported by the Insurance Information Institute (III).
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), around 20% of car accidents are caused by brake-related problems. Whether your brakes need to be replaced or were faulty, you never expect them to completely fail and potentially cause a car collision. Brake failure can be deadly, so it’s important for you to know what actions to take if you find yourself in that situation.
