20 True/False questions

  1. __________ system electronically monitors and controls each of the wheels during braking to keep them from locking.rolling friction


  2. Loss of traction causes loss ofa smooth, straight line using steady pressure.


  3. When a driver applies a steady __________ pressure to the brake pedal, the computerized ABS automatically slows and stops the vehicle.downward


  4. A __________ results when the wheels lock and do not turn while the vehicle is moving.slide


  5. With proper braking technique, the driver presses the brake pedal with __________ pressure, to slow or stop as quickly as possible.increasing.


  6. To stop a vehicle equipped with ABS quickly, an officer will apply the brakes __________ to engage the ABS. The officer will feel the brake pedal pulsing, which is a normal condition indicating that the vehicle is in ABS mode.release the accelerator


  7. If the tires begin to spin (when accelerating), the officer will immediately __________; this stops the tires from spinning.release the accelerator


  8. A(n) __________ skid happens just before the tires lose traction during braking. The tires lock, causing loss of steering control and a skid.incipient.


  9. __________ is looking in the desired direction of travel to avoid an obstacle and steering in that direction.rolling friction


  10. Weight transfer and centrifugal force __________ influence a skid.can


  11. A(n) __________ occurs just before the drive tires lose traction during acceleration.incipient.


  12. __________ is when a vehicle's tires constantly rotate on the road surface without losing contact.traction


  13. Using the shuffle steering technique allows thecaster effect to work for officers rather than against them.


  14. Some vehicles have enhancement to the conventional braking system called __________ system.hard


  15. When an emergency (hard or sudden) stop is required,ABS and non-ABS operate differently.


  16. Loss of traction is the result of loss of __________, which causes loss of vehicle control as the tires skid or slide on the road surface.rolling friction


  17. Proper acceleration is best done invehicle control as the tires skid or slide on the road surface.


  18. A __________ results from loss of both rolling friction and traction.slide


  19. __________ is the result of the friction a vehicle's tires create on the road surface.rolling friction


  20. Anti-lock braking system (ABS) is nowvehicle control as the tires skid or slide on the road surface.
