Stab Breaking Help

Stab braking:
A. Should never be used.
B. Involves releasing the brakes only after the wheels lock up.
C. Involves steady pressure on the brake pedal without locking the wheels.
D. Skids are never possible while performing this maneuver.

Answer: Involves releasing the brakes only after the wheels lock up.

When someone pulls out in front of you your natural response it to hit the brakes. This is a good response if the brakes are used correctly and there is enough distance to safely stop. You should always break in a way that will keep the struck in a straight line and allow you to turn if it becomes necessary. One method is the “stab breaking.” In this method you should apply the brakes all the way until the wheels lock up. When the wheels lock release the brakes and then as the wheels start to roll again reapply the brakes fully. This will help your vehicle to straighten out as you stop.
