From an article by Jay Heater on the YourObserver.com website:

The cardboard cut-out deer was just ahead on the track at Bradenton Motorsports Park and my BRAKES driving instructor was prompting me to go faster.

“Floor it,” she said firmly, before adding even louder. “Floor it!”

My right foot didn’t want to cooperate as it received conflicting instructions from my brain. After all, that’s was Bambi, for goodness sakes, and I didn’t want to squish Bambi.

I finally got a little bit of speed going, and I was closing on my intended target in a hurry. That’s when my instructor did an about-face. “Brake! Brake!”

I followed orders, veering off to the right of Bambi and feeling a grab, grab, grab, from the anti-lock brakes, instead of experiencing an uncontrolled skid.

It was just a little demonstration of what today’s cars can do.
