    How do I say I stopped the car when using to break in the past tense.

    I use the breaks to stop, so do I say. "I broke the car" when I want to say that I stepped on the break and stopped the car? Or is that too strange?

    Re: none

    the brakes of a car

    now I brake
    yesterday I braked sharply as I rounded the curve

    compare 'break' = separate or cause to separate into pieces as a result of a blow, shock, or strain
