ABS technology first emerged in the 1920s when aircraft engineers sought to apply automatic override braking to their planes. Notably, ABS was designed to prevent aircraft wheels from locking during sudden deceleration.
By the 1950s, the technology appeared on motorcycles, and by the 1960s, it had migrated to high-end cars. It wasn’t until the 1990s when ABS, along with traction control systems, became a common option on many car models. In 2013, ABS was federally mandated, and all new passenger vehicles were required to include ABS.
How do you know if your vehicle has ABS? If your car was built during the 2013 model year or later, then it does. If your car was manufactured prior to 2013, consult your owner’s manual.
