The emergency braking It is one of the maneuvers most likely to save us from an accident. It is not a complicated exercise in itself, but many drivers perform it poorly, to the point that manufacturers have developed a system called BAS (Brake Assistant System, or assisted braking system) to avoid the most common mistake: do not press the brake with all the force possible.
To perform an emergency braking we must be aware that maximum stopping power is achieved in a straight line and that we must step on the clutch pedal to reduce stopping distances and, above all, to prevent the engine from stalling. If the engine stalls, in addition to being left without power steering, we will not have reaction time to leave the risk zone if necessary.
Here is the video in which we show you how the emergency braking maneuver should be carried out correctly.
