Why does my car feel like it is steering to the right when I apply the brakes?

If a car steers to the right when you brake, its wheels may not be aligned correctly or the tyres may not be correctly inflated.

Sometimes, the brakes could be faulty and different braking pressure is applied to each wheel.

Whatever the cause, it is crucial that you send your car to a workshop as soon as possible. A car that veers to either side when the brakes are applied can cause serious accidents.
