The automotive braking system is designed to decrease the speed of a fast-moving vehicle. Most of today's cars have hydraulic brake systems, which consist of disk brakes in the front and either disk or drum brakes at the rear wheels.
A system of tubes and hoses link the brake at each wheel to the master cylinder. Parking brakes, power brake boosters and antilock-systems are other brake systems incorporated in most vehicles today.
