Several times when I applied my brakes on ice or slippery snow, it seemed like my brakes failed to function properly, at the initial application.

I was creeping--2 or 3 mph--up to an intersection in my 06 Tacoma. When I tried to stop, I could feel the anti lock brakes shifting around, but the truck would not stop. It "drove itself" into the path of a mack dump truck, totaling my truck & sending me to the chiropractor twice so far. If my truck had managed to get another 2 or 3 feet into the intersection, the dump truck would have hit my driver's side door instead of the front tire. Odds are, I would not have survived that crash. My insurance is finding me at fault, Toyota offered to run diagnostics on the truck after it was fixed. My truck was hit so hard, it busted the engine block, so it won't be fixed, it's considered totaled. So I'm ?!@#$% unless you folks can get something done!
