ABS, stands for anti-lock braking system, and is the most significant safety development since the seatbelt. If a tire locks and skids on the road’s surface, braking distance can increase and steering control can be lost. An anti-lock brake system is designed to prevent loss of tire adhesion during hard breaking, and help the driver maintain steering control. Basically, the anti-lock brake system improves driver and passenger safety by reducing stopping distance and increasing directional stability under panic stop conditions.
If your ABS braking system fails, a warning light will come on to alert you about an ABS malfunction. Even though your ABS warning light is on, your main braking system is unaffected and you will be able to stop. However, you should consider taking your car into an automotive shop to have your brakes serviced as soon as possible.
To avoid disastrous brake failure or costly repairs, it is wise to have your brakes checked regularly by a qualified technician. At, Right Way Auto Repair, we keep your brakes safe and functional.
