Anti-Lock braking System (ABS) is a critical safety feature in most cars nowadays. These sensors monitor the wheel rotation and send information to the vehicle control unit. It prevents the wheels from locking thus increasing safety from uncontrolled skidding. ABS greatly improves stopping distances in dry and wet weather.
When the sensors are defective a warning light will appear on the dash board. Ignoring this warning light will increase your risk of skidding which may cause an accident under severe / hard braking.

Food for Thought
ABS was first developed for aircraft use in 1929 by the French automobile and aircraft pioneer, Gabriel Voisin, as threshold braking on airplanes is nearly impossible. These systems use a flywheel and valve attached to a hydraulic line that feeds the brake cylinders. The flywheel is attached to a drum that runs at the same speed as the wheel. In normal braking, the drum and flywheel should spin at the same speed. However, if a wheel were to slow down, then the drum would do the same, leaving the flywheel spinning at a faster rate. This causes the valve to open, allowing a small amount of brake fluid to bypass the master cylinder into a local reservoir, lowering the pressure on the cylinder and releasing the brakes. The use of the drum and flywheel meant the valve only opened when the wheel was turning. In testing, a 30% improvement in braking performance was noted, because the pilots immediately applied full brakes instead of slowly increasing pressure in order to find the skid point. An additional benefit was the elimination of burned or burst tires
