My car squeaks when I drive and stops when I brake?

2 days ago I was driving my car home from the store and all of a sudden, I rolled down my window and was hearing a squeaking sounds as I was driving down the street. The noise continued until I got to the parking lot and applied my break to slow down...

I went to an auto shop today and told them about the noise but all they did was change my oil (which was not needed). I know, I should have asked them but I am not used to going to an auto shop alone.

They lifted my car and everything so I figured there was nothing wrong. Low and behold as I am driving home, the squeaky noise starts again! But it started 5 minutes down the road as I was in the Starbucks Drive-Thru and continued after that.

Anyone know what is wrong?? And why the auto-repair shop did not fix it?

    You're hearing the brake indicators rubbing against the rotors. Time for new brake pads and rotors.

    Get the brakes inspected.  Rotors and pads could be bad.
