    I think twice a year is good for brakes to be checked.

    Brakes pads have a built in point so that when they get low they start to squeek very badly. That an the feeling of not being able to stop how you used to should be a clear sign that you need to get them checked.

    For visual inspections yu can just have a mechanic look at them during your oil changes..

    it depends on how you drive.

    if you are an ACTIVE driver, you are definitely an active braker and should have your brakes checked more regularly than those who drive like a fresh batch of molasses

    if you are a drive with your brake light on kinda person (i.e. ride your brakes) like de ones who inhabit the left lane of the Belt Parkway, then you should be shot on the spot.

    Oh my goodness! I ask myself about these people everyday! What are you doing on the BELT, can't drive, but in the left lane slowing me down! Then no one is in front of you for at least 3 to 4 car lengths and you BRAKING!

    What is the BRAKING about! Feed some speed into your ride!!!
