ABS stands for "Anti-lock Braking System". It is used on modern cars and vans to help drivers maintain control of the vehicle during hard braking. It works by not letting the wheels "lock up" and stop traction.

  • AdditionAdded 5/2/09:

Also, Anti-Lock brakes automatically "pump" the brakes for you, as necessary. That's why brake experts & your vehicle's owner manual will tell you DO NOT pump your brakes. It's absolutely uncalled for; that is, for the newer vehicles that come with ABS. On the older cars, before Anti-locking Brake Systems were made, pumping your brakes was the good & proper thing to do.
