This is a rather effective and brilliant explanation.
^ Have tried explaining so many times to the wife: ABS makes your tires go pitter-patter and take tiny stopping steps. No ABS = brakes lock up and we die.
ABS = Auto brake system? Cause your suppose to press the brake peddle not leave your foot on, so it now automatically does it as people can't get the hang of it?
See, we still don't have one. We just know how to operate the brake properly.
ABS = Anti-lock Brake System. I fucking hate ABS. I never had it til I got the truck I have now. I severed the cable once and I loved it until some mechanic fucking "fixed" it for me without me knowing. I know how to use my damn brakes!
Get old vehicles - they don't have any mansy pansy things like that. Back when you actually had to know how to drive
agreed! I have a 1972 Ford Ranchero, and nothin about it is automatic or does the work for me.
It's more for people like my sisters who slam the brakes, methinks.
The ABS presses the pedal over and over for you. If you have ABS (and there's a chance that no car in functional existence doesn't these days), then pressing the pedal over and over will make your brakes explode.
I know the concept with them as it basically breaks the car properly for you. My dad can't stand it, as he breaks properly already. He feels they should have button to turn it on, or something, so that "real drivers can brake like they're suppose to"
On some cars, or the ones my family has owned, pressing the brake the second time (sometimes after three) will disengage them automagically. Mine is that way, though it's a '96.
All my vehicles have had nice buttons right on the dash to turn it off, no real point though it brakes pretty much perfectly even if you know how to brake 9 times out of 10 it will allow you to come to stop faster in snow covered and wet roads
ABS doesn't brake for you, it just makes it so when you slam on the pedal it doesn't lock up the wheels, it opens and closes inlets and outlets to the brakes making it lock and unlock about 16 times per second so the wheels will keep moving allowing you to be able to steer as your braking as well as stopping quicker then if the wheels locked up
"(and there's a chance that no car in functional existence doesn't these days)"
Are you really ignorant enough to think no one still has a car from the 80's or older?
i have an '88 and a '72 so does that mean I'm breakin the law?
I think they meant no car manufactured today, as opposed so all cars owned.
He said in existence, and still functional. It is true that (In America at least, but probably all other nations that produce automobiles) no car or truck is manufactured for use on public roads without ABS, but that has only been the case for about 20 years. My '88 Chevy Suburban is sans ABS.
It's called over-exaggeration. He also said "there is a chance" too, which means it's not 100% definite, if we're going to be picky with word play.
I hope so, it would preserve some of my faith in humanity.
Looks like neither setting will save these two from being drowned by their owner. They shit in his shoe one time too many.
Can you really blame Welsh Corgies with their tiny little legs?
Not for anything, ever.
