    Brake failure on a lexus jeep ! this is most uncommon. even if the primary system fails which includes the abs , the other parts should still function as normal to bring the car to a halt unless there are other variables involve, like armed robbery; over speeding or driver incompetence; for example the vehicles computer might have displayed some faults but if the driver is not literate he may not take right action, also bad roads, there also is the aspect of incompetent service maintenance personnel, most of these new vehicles are not for illiterate mechanics, there are computer bases systems on them, even to change brake pads on some luxury cars require the service personnel to use OBD computer to deactivate the electronics in order to have access to the worn out pads. this is one the more reason government has to invest in vocational studies to bridge the gap between the higher education institution so that, certain aspect of some trades can be thought to less privileged to help the nation move forward. everyone want to drive latest cars but they never think of the maintenance, which is really crucial to enjoying the vehicle. Rip to the deceased.

    @Tee, any vehicle, no matter how sophisticated it is, could suffer brake failure. Defensive driving is the only option that we have. Some drivers, knowing fully well that they would soon slow down, continue to fire the car until about 10-15m from the point they need to stop. Then they apply their brakes.
    That is a very risky way to drive. For me, I stop throttling the car even from 200m. I apply my brakes gently. Should there be brake failure, I would notice it from then and quickly take actions to avert it. I could shift my gear lever to L if my car transmission is automatic, or move the gear lever to gear 1 in a manual transmission. When I do this, the car quickly slows down and any touch of the brake pedal could have some effect.

    I ones drove like this from Taraba State to Enugu on a night like that. I thank God for experience.
