BRAKELIGHT: May 1945

This headline was a little deceptive and sensational. In 1921, the U.S. government started keeping track of road fatalities. By 1945, the total had crossed the 600,000 fatalities mark. U.S. casualties in WWII were around 420,000 by May 1945. Brakes were critical to the war effort. A properly functioning brake system could save fuel by not dragging and save tires by not locking and wearing the tires.
