Ford Escape brakes locked

Asked by Feb 13, 2019 at 04:48 PM about the 2011 Ford Escape

Question type: General

I was just driving in slight rain.  A car pulled out in front of me.  I was doing about 25 miles per hour.  I hit the brakes and they locked up.  Didn't slow at all and I slammed into the back of the car in front of me.  Why did this happen?  Was there a problem with the car?

Are your tires worn out or are they summer tires?
