ABS working great

It's just amazing to see something like this work right in front of your eyes.

Standing on the intersection, waiting for a green light. One car in front of me. The light is still red, but the other light is turning yellow. This guy is flying down hill, and when he comes to almost 50-60 meters from the stop lights he realises that he won't be able to outrun the yellow light. He was driving VW Passat Mk3. He slams on the brakes and attempts to stop...the tires are squealing like crazy, breakes are going ON, OFF, ON, OFF (ABS I guess) then the car's tires block for longer period of time, this is when the car starts skidding left. Just when he was gonna loose control and cross the street, brakes release and he regains control. Needless to say, it was a pretty shitty situation for him. I don't know why he was braking so hard, since everyone has already seen his stupid ass speeding down the road - not like anyone was gonna go even if it was green light. Luckily he stops few meters before the intersection and turns right towards me...

It was amazing to watch though...I've never seen something like this in real life and working so good.

ABS has saved me from totalling two cars. I hate that i'm not in control of the car, but glad at the same time it's saving me.
