ANTILOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)

When ABS-equipped brakes are pressed hard (for instance in the case of a panic stop) the ABS system pumps the brakes up to 30 times per second to prevent them from locking up. ABS helps the driver maintain control and stop the car in a straight line, rather than spinning out of control.
