Anti lock brakes are self controlling, pumping the pedal or older methods of reducing skid can reduce the ability of the abs to come to the quickest stop possible without lockup. Typically you apply the brake as needed and a correctly functioning ABS system will stop as quickly as possible without wheel lockup. Using other good driving judgment / skills are in order for hydroplane, spinning out, etc. Additionally some vehicle incorporate traction, body, suspension and ABS control - that monitor and adjust each system instantly to provide stability, traction, braking, handling, height and other features to provide quality ride, handling and control on various surfaces and conditions,
