If you get rear ended, it has everything to do with the idiot behind you following too close and not paying attention.
It is always recommended to use the engine to slow a vehicle over the brakes. As brakes heat up their performance degrades. A good defensive driver, their brakes will have issues related to calipers seizing up but otherwise lasting an exceptionally long time.
Dave, you’re a fear monger.
I think a lot of opinion on this is based on personal circumstances. FYI; WA drivers DON'T know how to drive. We were ranked 178th AFTER discounting for weather conditions so can't even use rain as an excuse.
As far as brake lights flashing on and off. Its rather common here for people to ride the brakes without slowing down if they see something ahead due to the huge number of rear enders we have here.
