i am going to test the press the brake, then press harder theory tonight to see if i can get the ABS to kick in.
Thanks! That info would be helpful.
I have braked on wet road before where I slow down from 35 to about 5mph, then braked harder and observed ABS kick in on the final stretch. I wouldn't have thought you have to have a 'fresh' stomp on the brake to get ABS activated.

I was on a ski trip when the accident happened, where I live I don't get snow, so I can't do any more testing, now that I'm back home. I only ski about 2 times a year, so I can't justify getting snow tires just for the 2 trips per year.
