There is a difference between static and dynamic friction! Once your car begins to slide (i.e. dynamic friction), the coefficient of friction is much lower. Thats why ABS immediately releases the break when the tire starts to slide, in order to restore static friction and avoid the lower coefficient.

Retirement means that when someone says "Have a nice day", you actually have a shot at it.
