https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braking_distance "Braking distance refers to the distance a vehicle will travel from the point when its brakes are fully applied to when it comes to a complete stop." I'd like to know something. When the brakes are fully applied and before the car stops. Are the wheels still rotating or are they simply skidding in the roads? If they are still rotating.. then that means they are not locked and so ABS (Anti Brake locking System) won't work?
