Default Brakes brakes brakes

Start of rant:

Motor vehicles have BRAKES, not breaks.

If you have BREAKS, it is no wonder that they don't work because you probably broke them.

End of rant!

Is this an example of where auto spell correct is not our friend?

I know most of my typos are not ignorance, it is my fingers not obeying my brain and the software incorrectly assuming what I meant.

I'm sure some people just can't spell too.

But in either case, it usually isn't to hard to figure out the meaning of the authors intended thought.

I almost put shutter vs shudder. If your truck has a shutter, you've more problems than anyone on here could help with.
