ABS Brakes – The Ability to Brake and Steer

Anti-lock brake systems now come standard on most vehicles.  Anti-lock brakes reduce stopping distance by keeping the wheels turning during heavy braking, maintaining friction between the road and the vehicles tires.  Without anti-lock brakes a driving under heavy braking may “lock up” their brakes causing the car to skid and increasing stopping distance relative to cars with anti-lock brakes.

*If your vehicle currently does not have anti-lock brakes consider upgrading.

 

It is important for anyone driving a car equipped with anti-lock brakes to learn its capabilities.  The most important capability of anti-lock brakes is not stopping.  It is the ability to continue handling the vehicle under heavy braking conditions.  The following are tips for how to effectively drive a car with anti-lock brakes.

 

  1. When in an emergency, step on the brakes harder and stay on them.
  2. Don’t panic by pumping the brakes.  Pumping the brakes will make the ABS ineffective.
  3. ABS is not designed to stop the vehicle under emergency conditions but  to maintain steering control while braking.  In this case, veering around any obstacle becomes less difficult.
  4. The best thing to do is when avoiding obstacles, remember to veer to the right so you can prevent getting hit or hitting oncoming traffic.
  5. Overconfidence will get you nowhere.  Drive cautiously even when your car has anti-lock braking systems.
