ABS SAVES LIFES & CAR I was going to an nearby town(Pollachi) from Coimbatore(April 22nd 2010) via NH 209 in my Linea. I was arriving at an Intersection whrein a bypass road of NH 47 meets. The signal was GREEN for me & I was driving at around 45 Kms speed, sudenly a Swift Dezire from Kerala(from NH47 bypass) appeared like a gost :shocked right in front of my car just 10 feet away jumping the RED signal. I applied break fully & ABS though helped me by not locking the wheels, I was able to steer the car just in time & away form the Dezire. Thanks to ABS Breaking system, otherwise my car would have skidded & rammed into the Dezire front left door which I think would have rolled over & would have caused considerable damage to the car & loss of life. Buy Cars with ABS. ABS & Air Bags should be made compulsary in all cars.
