these people moved in across the street and they have this liek 20 year old carm, and it had the squeakest brakes really really really really loud, seriously u can hear it like 10 houses down.... but the worst part was they have like 3 families living there and they all use that car, so u can always hear them pulling ut therir driveway at like 3am or 2pm or 10am or 11pm... omg, i swear... they finnaly fixed it after about 4 months though

The way to stop squeaky brakes is to
1.make sure the rim is clean and dry (use a rubbing alcohol to clean it)
2.remove your brake pads and lightly sand the surface with sandpaper
3. When you put the pads back on, "toe" them in: So the front of the pad hits the rim slightly before the back. If it still squeaks, toe them in more.
