What will slamming on the brakes after a tire blows out result in?

It will result in an uncontrolled skid - possibly overturning the vehicle. The best action on a blow-out is to lightly 'tap' the brakes in short, rapid movements. This slows the vehicle to a stop - while allowing the driver to keep control.

What would make the brakes lock up in a 1996 Chevy blazer when going low speeds of 15-30 mph. could they be over adjusted or calipers.?

I have had the same problem on my 1996 Blazer. I talked to a bus driver about it and was given this little trick that might help. If it has something to do with brake adjustment, try backing up and slamming on the brakes 4-5 times- sometimes the brakes adjust themselves from us using them in only one direction so much.

What force slows car hitting the brakes?

The force that slows a car when hitting the brakes is friction. When the brake pads press against the rotating brake rotor, friction is created, which converts kinetic energy into heat and slows down the car.

If you are being too closely while driving you should?

Increase Your speed Updated answer, If for instance you are in a twenty zone and someone is driving to close to rear of your car, you have the right to go slower, if the driver behind you still drives to close hit the brakes a few times, to let him know, you know he is there. On the motorway if you are adhering to the speed limit, then slow down for a few seconds, and the car behind should pass you. Sometimes the best thing to do is pull off the road you are on and let the offender go on. I highly advise against hitting your brakes. There are people out there that suffer from road rage and you may end up in an altercation by hitting your brakes.
