Auto Repair For Illinois: Palatine 60067 | Arlington Heights 60004 | Streamwood 60107

Antilock Braking System (ABS)ABS, or Anti-Lock Braking System, prevents the wheels from locking up during an emergency stop, such as slipping on icy roads. The anti-lock brakes also shorten the stopping distance. Their main advantage over the non anti-lock systems is that they provide the driver with full steering control during aggressive stops. If the wheels on a non-ABS car were to lock up during an aggressive stop, the driver would lose control of the car, while an ABS equipped vehicle comes to a safe stop.
