Unexpected trouble on the road can spring up in front of even the most seasoned drivers. In order to avoid a collision or any other sort of danger, you may apply a sudden brake. This is the point where the anti-lock braking system (ABS) of the car comes into the picture.

The ABS prevents the wheels of the automobile from locking up. This helps the vehicle maintain its grip on the road. The technology is said to have been first used in aircrafts in the 1950s. It was later adopted by car manufacturers and it presently used in almost all the modern cars.

How Does ABS Work?

ABS is a part of the stability system in the vehicle, also referred to as electronic stability control. This monitors the wheels of the car at the time of heavy braking. If the sensors find that a wheel will lock up in the future and stop moving, the brake will be released by the system for a moment. The ABS system will then repeatedly apply optimum braking pressure to the wheels and prevent locking.

The driver may feel a pulsation through the brake pedal when ABS is active.

  • The ABS system is responsible for helping the driver retain control of the vehicle.
  • It reduces the possibility of skidding even when the driver takes evasive turns in excess. However, the braking distance of the car may increase.

Importance Of Having ABS In A Vehicle:

Older models of cars are available without ABS and some people do not prefer having it; however, it is a very useful safety device. Research indicates that cars with the ABS system have the following characteristics:

  • These are less likely to be involved in crashes by 37%.
  • Frontal collision on wet roads is decreased by 35% and by 9% on dry roads.
  • 58% of the cars without ABS lose traction and stray from the roads. On the other hand, only 24% of cars with ABS are likely to lose traction.

The above figures are not indicative of the experience on roads with snow, ice, or gravel.

If your vehicle does not have the ABS system, you can simulate the experience of having one by repeatedly applying and releasing the brake. This will ensure that you have better control over the vehicle as well.

In case you encounter a problem with the ABS while driving, be extra cautious when you brake and stop the vehicle. Also, examine the level of fluid and drive it into a garage if you are still concerned that a problem would arise. It is always better to get the car examined by a professional if you sense something is wrong.
