Examples of brakes in a Sentence

  1. Paolo Gentiloni:

    I very much regret the U.S.' move to put the brakes on international talks on taxation of the digital economy.

We are going to be driven by the science, the data and public health, we will be monitoring our progress locally, regionally, and nationally and if there are outbreaks, if there are problems, we will not hesitate to put on the brakes.
