The emergency brake can be useful in some situations like turning 180 on a wet surface: very spectacular althoug rather easy. I can imagine it is possible to avoid some head-on collisions this way, but I don't know you would have the time or the instinct to react this way. Practising this technique (in a save environment of course) learned me a lot about my cars handling in extreme conditions. It is almost the only way to make a FWD oversteer (besides stepping off the throtlle when cornering fast). ABS (like the safety-belt) turns out to be a great system in 99% of the cases. Those systems do not reduce the amount of accidents because people tend to depend on them. regards, Gupgo
