ABS Brake Questions and Answers
Anti-lock brakes are designed to prevent skidding and help drivers maintain steering control during an emergency stopping situation. In cars equipped with conventional brakes, the driver pumps the brakes, whereas in cars equipped with four-wheel ABS, the driver keeps a firm foot on the brake allowing the system to rapidly and automatically pump the brakes. Because the wheels don't lock up, drivers have the ability to steer around hazards if they are unable to stop in time.
