Question: What Is ABS In Regards To Vehicles?



Answer: ABS stands for Anti-lock Braking System. This system controls the brakes when your tires are on different surfaces. For example, if one wheel is on ice and the other has traction the ABS system will automatically balance it out as if you have traction all around. In addition, if a driver takes a turn too quickly the ABS system will automatically brake one wheel and not the others to help straighten out the car and prevent an accident.
