Very true. Locking the wheel may be a huge misconception; hence why you see a lot of rear-end collisions with long skid marks. I don't know how many have locked up the wheels but you can feel it(locking the wheels usually makes the car feel like it's trying to settle/level out, while near the max threshold you're being pushed into the steering wheel).
