1.7.5. Anti-blocking system of brakes

The anti-blocking system of brakes (ABS) prevents blocking of wheels at sharp braking or at movement along the road with an uneven covering. The electronic control unit anti-blocking system of brakes (ABS) traces the frequency of rotation of wheels of the car and regulates pressure of brake fluid in working brake cylinders. Thereby in emergencies or on the slippery road this system improves controllability of the car during braking.

In operating time of anti-blocking system of brakes (ABS) when braking on a pedal of a brake the weak pulsation can be felt. Also during the movement of the car there can be a noise in motor office. These are the normal phenomena, they point that the anti-blocking system of brakes (ABS) works correctly.

The anti-blocking system of brakes (ABS) will not be able to prevent the road accidents (accidents) owing to the wrong or dangerous maneuvering. Though it also promotes improvement of controllability of the car during emergency brake application, always observe a safe distance from the car going ahead. Speed of the car needs to be reduced in adverse traffic conditions. In the listed below cases the brake way of cars with the anti-blocking ABS brake system can be longer, than at cars without it.
The movement on the gravel roads and roads covered with snow.
The movement with the established antisliding chains.
The movement on roads on which surface there are roughnesses, holes, etc., on bumpy or other roads with a bad covering.
Speed of the movement along such roads has to be reduced. Do not check the safety ensured by the car equipped with anti-blocking system of brakes (ABS), undergoing turns or moving at high speeds.
