Give me a break. Isn't it funny how quickly people blame mechanical failure over mental failure? One of the first things I learned about my ABS (from the dealer) is that they are pretty much useless at high speeds on slick surfaces, such as wet grass.
"A National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) study on Antilock Braking Systems (ABS) reveals that they’re not all that. In fact, the technology increases fatalities in certain circumstances. Fatal run-off-road crashes of passenger cars increased by a statistically significant 9 percent.
On wet, snowy, or icy roads, where ABS is most likely to activate, the increase in fatal run-off-road crashes is a statistically significant 34 percent in passenger cars (confidence bounds: 20% to 50% increase). On these roads, all three types of fatal run-off-road crashes increase significantly for cars and so do fatal rollovers of LTVs."
Training folks, training!
