Pumping brakes, in recent Tips for Driving in Bad Weather article

In an article linked from a recent USAA Email, I found a recommendation to pump the brakes on icy roads.

 

That’s outdated, as most cars now have antilock braking systems and pumping brakes.  The proper way to use them is to hold a steady pressure and allow the system to do the pumping for you.

 

USAA should consider updating that reticle.
