Mercedes-benz Brake Dust Shield Saves Lives..

By: John Garett

Car accidents happen instantaneously. Worse, about four people die every hour in these car related accidents. What is really depressing about this is that this statistic is drastically increasing in numbers. In this day and age of fast living and the pursuit of speed and performance, the importance of the safety aspects of vehicles must be tediously reiterated in every manufacture that comes out in the market. The average consumer must be given the best safety options that should be a standard in a car's safety features. If not, what the manufacturers can do is offer supplemental safety parts and accessories that would enforce better safety. Mercedes-Benz, the German vehicle manufacturer that is considered to be the world's leader in producing the safest line of cars, is one of the few companies that did take car safety seriously. It is most apparent in their designs and in their engineering, incorporating the best systems an automobile could offer. Their braking system is perhaps the best brake system in the world. Mercedes-Benz pioneered the first electronic version of the ABS (anti-lock braking system) in Mercedes cars.

According to the 2003 study by the Monash University Accident Research Center, the ABS system reduced the risk of multiple vehicle crashes by 18%. Another braking systems enhancement by Mercedes-Benz is the "brake assist" feature. The system determines if the driver is attempting a "panic stop" and automatically increases braking force where not enough pressure is applied. Today, the Mercedes S-Class is hailed as the safest line of cars in the market. Having the best braking system doesn't really mean that you could put your worries to rest. It is best measure to constantly check and add protection to the braking system. The is one great accessory that works like a shield and armors to the wheel and brakes. The braking system can easily be damaged by dust and debris accumulated by travel. Dust gathers around the wheel causing scratches and lacerations that eventually wear down wheel performance and ultimately the brake system itself. The brake dust shield is installed between the rim and the brake disc, thereby providing protection especially on the front wheels where brake dust generation most often occurs. The issue of safety encompasses all aspects of the automobile. From the largest component to the smallest, every detail should be equipped with the maximum protection or enhancement so that efficiency will not be compromised. In the case of the Mercedes brake dust shield, the Mercedes' highly regarded braking system will not only be protected but will also be greatly enhanced. This accessory was particularly designed and engineered to withstand and defend the brakes from the inescapable attrition of dust. Mercedes-Benz brake dust shields are made from aluminum alloy that needs little maintenance. The aluminum plate catches all the brake dust blown from the brake disc and prevents it from setting on the rims. Safety is a standard. But there are those who do not limit themselves on the average, they exceed them. The Mercedes-Benz brake dust shield is a fine testament to a company who we can all depend our lives on.
