Why does my car seem like its breaking all by itself?

When I'm driving, it feels like my car is braking... I don't know what's going on.

Could be a bad brake booster, does the break pedel seem harder to press than before? Also you might have a collapsed brake hose not allowing the caliper to return. One other possibility is the parking brake is stuck on, this is common in the north or in salty areas, the cables rust and bind up in the cable housing.

Thanks! I ended up taking my car to a mechanic and they said nothing was wrong. Maybe I'm paranoid

Caliper may need to be cleaned and lubed
