    Car auction safety checks: Anti-lock braking system


    When a driver brakes, the anti-lock braking system keeps the vehicle’s wheels in tractive contact with the road to prevent the vehicle from skidding and crashing. Anti-locking braking systems are now widespread, helping motorists enjoy better vehicle control on slippery surfaces like ice and snow, which can be particularly hazardous and put drivers and passengers at a much higher risk of being injured in a road traffic accident.

    Anti-lock braking systems – now a legal requirement in the EU

    Since 2007, all new passenger cars sold within the European Union have been required to have an anti-lock braking system, three years after a study conducted by Monash University in Australia discovered that cars with anti-lock braking systems were 35 per cent less likely to be involved in run-off-road crashes.

    Road accidents can happen out of the blue

    Unfortunately, many people are still killed or injured in road accidents that could have been avoided. Although the UK has one of the lowest road fatality rates in the EU, there were still 1,754 reported road casualties on Britain’s roads in 2012 alone, according to data from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. If you have been injured in a roadside accident that was the fault of someone else, you could be eligible to claim for accident compensation.
