Safety is your outmost priority and with it comes the knowledge on how and what must be needed to do. Here are a step by step process on how to stop a car with failing brakes.
After turning on the hazard lights to aware of other drivers, open all the car windows. It’s good to have power windows especially if you’re driving. If you are alone and you have an older model car, you can manually roll down the windows that you can safely reach.
Make sure that you don’t compromise road safety by failing to maneuver the steering wheel while you roll down the windows.

Pick a road that goes slightly upwards and drives your car there to lose some speed. One of the things you should consider when picking an upward slope is that it should not be too steep that instead of losing speed, you gain more after the ascend and there is no heavy traffic where more drivers can potentially get hurt if you lose control of your vehicle.
Try turning the key to reach the “off” if you’re still having trouble with stopping the vehicle. If the first method didn’t work for you and you’re still having trouble with the above steps 1 and 2, then this may stop your car.
However, we would like to strongly advise only to result in this method when all else fail. This can be very dangerous and requires that you are calm so you don’t end up turning the engine off while the vehicle is at a speed.
