It was the first heavy snow in the last winter. The snow on some segments of 401 was not removed at that time, esp one segment near Milton. Some places were even covered with solid ice. The car in front of me brake suddenly and slipped from left to right. I hit my brake too. (I forgot that I should pump the brake in stead of hit it at that moment. ) Suddenly I felt the jolt from the brake pedal. It was the ABS! And my car was ok, straight ahead in the middle lane! I really thank my LG made the decision when we bought that car.
btw, when u drive on snow or icy road, you'd better pump the brake in stead of hit it, if you dont have ABS. Plus, have a good control of your wheel. :-)
