I forgot to completely release the parking brakes on my car and drove with them for a little while. When I got out of the car to refuel by standing next to the rear wheels, a strong foul odor like the burning smell of tires could be smelled that even other people noticed it.
My question is that would this smell and foul odor expose you to higher doses of asbestos fibers(if the brake pads contain it) just by overheating the brake pads and inhaling some of the smell?
EDIT: Actually, I chose the nickname of "Stefan" and proceeded to sign up rather being a guest, now I can't access that "Stefan" account.
@pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Thank you for the answer. My car is built around 2003, but it's a cheapo custom made car with low quality parts (from china?). I just have it for some reasons. But what do you mean by this " Even if they do contain asbestos, there isn't much to worry about as the fibers, for the most part, will remain outside of the vehicle."? Do you mean that asbestos will come off into the outside space when someone overheats them (by riding with parking brakes)?
