Specialists from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety of the USA told in what cases the ABS system can lead to an accident.

Statistics show that it interferes, becoming a dangerous device when ice appears on the track. Cars with ABS are 65% more likely to get into accidents in winter weather, when the road surface becomes slippery. Experts from the United States tried to understand why the use of an anti-lock system, which was created in order to make the ride safe, actually leads to the opposite consequences. Experts have learned that ABS harms when braking on a slippery track, as in this case the car does not pile up a snowdrift in front of itself because of the stop of the wheels. Because of what the probability of an accident increases.

If the driver is used to driving a car without ABS, it is difficult for him to rebuild in an emergency. Because of what, he will begin to press and release the brake pedal, copying the functions of the system, and this will increase the time the car stops. On a bumpy track, ABS works incomprehensibly, leading to an increase in braking distance. With problems in the suspension, the wheels sometimes do not touch the road surface, which disrupts the anti-lock braking system.
