With ABS, he would have hit that Van harder, ABS in NOT there to make your stop Shorter, its main purpose is to let you steer the car in panic stop situations


and P.S. for those that don't agree, NHTSA

http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/problems/E...absbrakes.html


Quote:
Why is that important?
When your brakes lock up on wet and slippery roads or during a panic stop, you lose steering control and your vehicle can spin. Rear wheel ABS prevents wheel lockup so that your car stays in a straight line. If your car has ABS control on all four wheels, you also keep steering control. If you have steering control, it is possible to avoid a crash by steering around hazards if a complete stop cannot be accomplished in time.

....

Do cars with ABS stop more quickly than cars without?
ABS is designed to help the driver maintain control of the vehicle during emergency braking situations, not make the car stop more quickly. ABS may shorten stopping distances on wet or slippery roads and many systems will shorten stopping distances on dry roads. On very soft surfaces, such as loose gravel or unpacked snow, an ABS system may actually lengthen stopping distances. In wet or slippery conditions, you should still make sure you drive carefully, always keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you, and maintain a speed consistent with the road conditions.
Sorry for the rant, I'm just not a fan of the belief that ABS is a catch-all

He would have been ok if he didn't accelerate towards a stopped vehicle with nowhere to turn
