BRAKING SAFELY WITH ABS

WITH ABS;

 

WHAT IT DOES...

 

Controls the braking system to prevent the wheels from locking up.

 

Allows for smooth and steady slow down, shorter braking distance and helps maintain steering control.

 

HOW TO USE IT...

 

The correct way to brake using abs is to slam on the brakes hard and keep your foot pushing down hard.

 

The brake pedal will probably vibrate and make some noise; this is normal. Keep your foot down hard on the pedal.

 

You will have good steering control so you will be able to steer your way around the obstacle you have to avoid.

 

 

NON - ABS;

 

WHAT IT DOES...

 

Applies braking pressure to all wheels at the same time and may cause a wheel (or wheels) to lock up, causing the vehicle to begin to skid. When the vehicle begins to skid you have no directional control over it.

 

HOW TO USE IT...

 

Squeeze the brakes. It doesn't matter how fast you need to stop, squeeze the brake pedal - firmly. This will stop you quicker than slamming your foot down or hitting the brakes.

 

If the brakes lock up, release the pedal, correct the skid and apply firm pressure again by squeezing the pedal.
