I've never driven my Bonne in those conditions....

My Jeep does not have anti-lock brakes so I am used to skidding and sliding.
You crash......j/k I dunno...I figure the same way they work on ice or snow separately....maybe a lil bit more useless...I duno.

I was in the Motor City this past weekend and it was 2 degrees out on Sunday morning. Very cold. It was up to 60 degrees here in DC today so I washed the cars. Rubbing it in to the cold bound Bonnevilles of the north. Try to stay warm.

I went to downtown Detroit early morning on Monday when it was about that cold. The wind chill was sub-zero. It was a great day for jury duty down there.

ive gotten my ABS brakes a kickin before on both wet dry and snowy/icy pavement....kinda gives you a nice foot massage, but keeps the wheels from locking! I almost wish it was disable sometimes for my 60-0 tests.......after I got my GTech I had to see what my slotted rotors and greenstuff pads would do...ill tell ya they work pretty friggin good..........but the foot massage just isnt as good as the real thing LOL

ABS breaks, on snow and ice, I have personally experienced many times. You basically are at the mercy of the ABS. Hold the break down, and pray you stop when you need to. It usually works in time.

My ABS system got a great workout tonight.

I hate my ABS system, personally... all it did was vibrate against my foot, and it didn't seem to stop me any faster. The point is that you're still able to steer in a hard-braking situation... but on thick snow and ice, you've lost traction to the point that turning the wheel woudln't help until you regain traction anyway. ABS works best on extreme-braking dry situations. On slippery stuff, it'* a moot point, in my experience.
