You have to take into consideration that living on Long Island, you are probably driving in heavier traffic, and therefore using the brakes much more than other drivers. I used to be on the LIE a lot, and can see how that might cut brake life in half. Living in a much less congested area now, my brakes last a lot longer than they used to.
