Default Threshold Braking

So, was out riding around today (about 10 minutes ago) cause i thought i heard a rattle in the back end of my ranger and the engine was idling a little funny. Got about 3 miles out of town on the highway and a god damn deer comes out of the woods. i'm hauling about 55-60 down the road so i slam on the brakes and now i start to hear my tires squeal and the brakes lock up and this is when i realize the ABS light was fooling me and i don't have ABS. SO, needless to say i just found out real quick like that i can threshold brake. And i didn't hit the deer, the fucker ran back in the woods. Hope my cousin get 'er during hunting season.

For those who know how to drive, threshold braking is better than ABS any day of the week.

It's applying the maximum amount of break pressure you can just shy of locking the wheels. It's a foolish concept to rely on since you'll never actually do it when you need it, it only works right on even dry pavement, and require equal traction on all tires. Congratulations if you can do it, it isn't a normal driving skill.
