1. Pump the brake pedal
If your brakes “fail,” one of the first things to do is pump the brake pedal.
When your brakes come off, you want to do three things. First, go down to the lower gear.
Second, if you have regular brakes pump the brake pedal fast and hard to build up brake fluid pressure.
If the brakes have not yet been activated after three or four pumps go to step three using the parking brake. Slowly apply the parking brakes and get ready for the car to slide.
