Self Study Program 88 – Skoda Brake and stabilisation systems PDF free online

Nowadays, a motor vehicle driver encounters more often crisis situations, which he cannot always solve himself with his skills and experience.

Crisis situations often arise for the following reasons:

  • increasing traffi c density and speed on the roads;
  • climatic conditions;
  • technical condition of the vehicle.

During the last thirty years, vehicle manufacturers and brake system suppliers have reacted to this situation with the development of braking and stabilisation systems that help the drivers to master some of the crises situations.

These systems, together with seat belts and airbags, are among the most important elements of active safety.

Myths about safety systems 

There are a lot of rumors circulating among the general public because of poor information about the operating principle of the assist systems. The most common myths include the following false statements:

  • the ABS system increases the braking distance;
  • the ABS system can be replaced by rapid, intermittent braking;
  • the interventions of the ESC system are premature and inaccurate;
  • the ESC system solves every critical driving situation for the driver.
