Depends on how much you use your brakes. I've seen drivers in front of me hit the brakes 3 times per minute in traffic-free situations. And the number of drivers who brake for every turn is huge. There's no way to predict it.

Vibration has a lot to do with life as does use.

Why do you care how long a 10 dollar bulb lasts anyway?

WUT?

A Friday jest. Tell ya what - if you find reliable statistical data, let us know.

OK. Did you weight your data to number and duration of braking events?

Now the second order: Weight results to G force.

I call this phenomenon negative braking, negative in the sense that little to no actual braking takes place but it has a positive effect on the driver, and a negative effect on anyone that sees it that actually knows how to drive. But hey, habitually scrubbing 1 or 2 mph off their speed if they see something moving 50m in front of them must make them feel like they are safe drivers. Steering input being required at the same time as modulation of the throttle must be rather complicated for the average dickhead.
