For the sixth consecutive year, the Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) will sponsor a period of Brake Safety Awareness. But this year, instead of covering just one week, the highly successful annual promotion will expand to the full month of August.
During Brake Safety Awareness Month, which will be held August 1-31, more than 9,200 MAP Participating Facilities will offer inspections, educate vehicle owners regarding key undercar systems, provide complimentary automotive troubleshooting materials and answer consumers’ preventative maintenance questions. Consumers can look for a repair facility prominently displaying its “Motorist Assurance Program” decal near its entrance or customer waiting area, or they can find participating stores in a particular area by visiting the MAP website at www.motorist.org.
Each installment of Brake Safety Awareness Month has brought increased participation by consumers. During the 2010 event, an average facility performed repairs on more than 50 percent of the vehicles inspected.
