Ice without studded tires or very good snow tires that can provide traction will not allow any traction at all, so ABS would not have helped because the tires would still have been lacking traction.

I read a while back that in Germany, when ABS first was introduced, insurance companies started giving discounts to drivers who had it, but later retracted the discount because many drivers with ABS were not using common sense and were driving too fast with too little distance between them an other drivers to reduce their risk of accidents -- I think the number of fender benders increased so they pulled the discount.

What tires do you have on your car?
