3 Greatest Benefits of Anti-Lock Brakes, Brunswick, Ohio

With so many safety features available in new cars, you may find yourself confused about which pieces of technology you actually need. Anti-lock brakes, otherwise known as ABS brakes, are one feature you should never skip out on.

Today the auto care experts at Ohio’s Superlube Complete Car Care explain the benefits of having a car with anti-lock brakes.

Why Anti-Lock Brakes Are So Important

1. Collision Prevention

Anti-lock brakes stop your car’s wheels from locking up during sudden braking, which means that you can continue to steer your vehicle to avoid a potential collision. Without anti-lock brakes, your wheels could lock up and cause your car to spin out of control, potentially resulting in a dangerous accident.

brakes2. Increased Braking Efficiency

An anti-lock braking system uses computerized technology to create the most effective amount of friction between your tires and the road. This prevents wasted energy and maximizes the efficiency and lifespan of your car’s brakes.

3. Reduced Stopping Distance

By maintaining a consistent amount of friction and preventing skidding, anti-lock brakes can reduce your stopping distance in wet or icy conditions. This means you’re less likely to get into an inconvenient fender bender or a more serious rear-end collision during torrential weather. However, it’s important to know that anti-lock brakes can increase your stopping distance on loose road surfaces, like sand or gravel, as well.

If your ABS dashboard light comes on, it may mean there’s a problem with your anti-lock braking system. To make sure you and your passengers stay safe, take your car to one of Superlube Complete Car Care’s six Cleveland, OH, locations. Their experienced technicians will identify and repair the failing anti-lock braking component and get you back on the road in record time.
