Stage 1 Physics: Issues investigation Introduction Most car safety devices in the modern day use overwhelming amounts of physics background in order for these devices to be as efficient as they are. Included concepts include inertia, momentum, force and acceleration. Active car safety devices Anti-lock braking system, or ABS, is a device that assists cars to slow down on a slippery surface in emergency situations while still allowing the car to be steered. When a driver hits the brakes and the tires start to lock and lose their grip on the road, the friction between the tires and the road decreases. The tires are fighting against static friction to keep the car in motion. When the wheels are sliding over the road they are continuing
