Noob here, brakes gave out for a second while backing out of driveway

While backing out of my fairly steep driveway my brakes stopped working for around 1-2 seconds. No snow, 32 degrees. Is this a common hiccup given I had just changed gears, or could it be the symptom of a larger issue? 


I've driven miles with stoplights etc with no problem since then. Am I safe driving the car?


its a 2012 Kia Soul.

The major reason why brakes fail is as a result of fluid leakage.

If there is a slow leak in the system it will effect the brake master cylinder by allowing air into the system creating a low peddle and eventual brake operation failure
