Question:

Which of the following must NOT be done when brakes fail while driving?

A
Explaination

If your brakes fail, pump the brake pedal. Pumping might temporarily restore enough brake fluid pressure to slow or stop your vehicle. Downshift to a lower gear. This uses the braking power of the engine to slow your vehicle. As a last resort, rub the wheels against a curb to reduce speed. If a collision is unavoidable, steer for a sideswipe rather than colliding head-on into something solid.
