1.42.13. Anti-blocking system of brakes (ABS)

ABS substantially promotes increase in active traffic safety of the car. Decisive advantage of ABS in comparison with the ordinary brake system is that even when braking on the slippery carriageway of a wheel are not blocked. Thereby controllability and the greatest possible stability at the movement remain.
If the wheel reaches the district speed which will be too small for the speed of the movement of the car, and will tend to blocking, the driving effort for this wheel enclosed to a brake shoe will decrease. This process of regulation becomes noticeable by the "pulsing" of the accelerator pedal accompanied with noise. Thereby as caution for the driver the signal that wheels are in the field of blocking is given. It is necessary to bring immediately the speed of the movement into accord with a condition of a paving and conditions of traffic. In particular, at a smooth surface of a paving of ABS cannot overcome physically set limits too. The raised degree of safety should not "provoke" to taking the risk!
At, each start of the ABS engine joins automatically.
Functioning of ABS is shown by a control lamp.
Control of pedals has to be exercised freely!
Therefore in space for legs there should not be objects which can slide off under pedals.
In the location of pedals there should not be also rugs or other additional floorings.
At malfunctions in the brake system more considerable course of a pedal can be required.
At any time an opportunity in order that it was possible to move completely down a pedal of coupling and a pedal of an accelerator has to be provided.
All pedals have to come back to the starting position freely
Therefore only such rugs which do not close working space of pedals and which are protected from sliding can be used.
