Anti-lock braking system

Written by  //  June 22, 2011  //  Insurance Glossary: A-D, Insurance Terms  //  No comments

This is a computer-controlled anti-lock braking system which, upon the driver’s application of the brake pedal, detects when a wheel is about to lock up and create a skid. The system prevents the skid and provides a smoother stop by performing an intermittent “pumping” of the brakes. As ABS goes into action, it gives off a grinding sound and creates a pulsating sensation on the brake pedal.
