W ARNING! Do not red uce the for ce applied to the b rake pedal if it is necessary to b rake the vehicle furthe r. This will negate the main benefit of ABS – th e ability to brake without affecting the s teerability of the vehicle. In the even t of an emerg ency stop, fully depress the br ak e peda l.
