ABS Braking

ABS Braking

The term ABS is used as a short form for Anti-lock Braking system in relation to car accidents. The primary function of ABS brakes in the car is to let you maintain proper control over the steering while in a situation of heavy braking. At the time where heavy braking is required such as at during an emergency situation in order to prevent an accident, you might have been trained to force the breaks again and again. This pumping of brakes on and off so as to prevent sliding out because of the loss of hold for braking too fast leads the car to go into a wrong direction.

While you knock into the brakes of your car hard without an ABS, then the wheels get jammed and you totally loose control of the car steering and it continuously keeps moving into the wrong direction making an accident inevitable. For this reason, the use of ABS braking becomes utmost necessary rather than forcing the brakes on and on and making the emergency situation worse.

In order to prevent accidents and to keep in control of the situation at the time of an emergency, you must have the ABS braking system installed in your car. In any vehicle with an ABS braking system; there be sensors present for measuring the rotation speed of each of the wheels. During heavy braking, if in case the sensors identify that the rotation sped of any of the wheels is just about to get locked; it would immediately send a warning sign to the to a computer system asking the brakes for easing the pressure of brakes on to the wheel so as to avert it from getting locked. This type of computerised brake forcing action most certainly occurs for around 15 times for each second.

This kind of braking system results in a steady as well as smooth slowdown coming to a halt. Apart from this, ABS braking in your car would also provide you with a shorter braking space as well as maintaining the control on your steering while at the time of heavy braking. The appropriate way of using brakes during ABS would be just to bang on to the brakes hard while keeping your feet stepped hard on it. You would get to know if the brakes are working or not as when they are working you would come to feel the brake pedals making some kind of noise as well as vibrating.

Whether you were injured on the road, at work, in a public place or elswhere you are likely to have a claim to pursue provided it can be proved that the accident was the result of someone else's negligence.
