ABS saved me from at least 1 serious accident in the old Mercedes. This is an offspring from aircraft technology - where having ABS on a rain filled or snowy runway - coming in at 150....
When it first became available in cars the insurance companies thought it would be a godsend, but found over time that the accident rates hadn't changed.
People are afraid to use it as it should be used - afraid to "lock up" the wheels...
To: mr2 On this topic, I'd be interested in hearing what you guys think about ABS.
I'm inclined to include it on the "do-dad" list, my impression being that
ABS is for those who don't know how to modulate brake pedal pressure. I'd
prefer to back off on my brake pedal when I feel the wheels locking up or
start losing steering control, instead of feeling the pedal chattering under
