A Brake Booster uses engine vacuum and pressure to increase the force the Brake Pedal exerts on the Brake Master Cylinder, making braking much quicker and easier for the driver. The Brake Booster does not brake for you, but helps by allowing a lot less physical effort to brake, reducing the chance of not braking in time and fatigue.
Why are Brake Boosters so Important?
As modern braking systems work at high fluid pressures, the absence of a Brake Booster would result in a brake pedal that is difficult to use and feels hard. This means that proper stopping ability would not only rely on a the driver's reflexes and awareness, but on their strength. As a result, the absence of a Brake Booster can be of dire concern to the safety the driver, passengers, and others on the road, and would also decrease accessibility of driving and enjoyable driving experience.
