first check for contamination, pull master cylander cap off, if it has rubber underneath the cap and it's expanded or heavily distorted a petroleum product (such as oil) is in the system. the whole brake system will have to be redone, including brake hoses, mc, prop valve, height sensor, and any thing else rubber relatted in the system. also over adjusted rear brakes or over adjusted e brake can cause this. but check for contamination first this is a serious safety issue.

The brakes are the primary cause of stopping a car whilst driving.

This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.

yes, its really risky because driving with bad brakes can probably cause a hydraulic failiure your brakes can fail and you dont want to know what happens so get your brakes checked

If you are driving on wet roads there is no way to avoid those effects. Most brakes dry out very quickly when applied.
