Your Story: ABS came on - braking power was basically gone. This was particularly bad because I was going towards a red light and went I expected to begin braking, the brakes felt like they suddenly did not work. I let up on the brakes and tried again, and they worked. This has happened before (railroad tracks, metal grating in roadway), but never as I as headed towards the back of a car. In the right conditions, this could easily cause someone to rear end somebody or worse, run over someone in a crosswalk.
