Either a problem in the ABS (like the hydraulic control unit) or in the master cylinder. Should still get it checked even if it seems fine now. Losing brakes in traffic is no joke - just remember you do have an emergency brake.

How would you get the hydraulic control unit or master cylinder checked out
