Complaint - Service Brakes

CAR FAILS TO STOP ON BUMPY SURFACES. STREET UNDER CONSTRUCTION WAS COVERED WITH METAL PLATES WITH BUMPY SURFACE (THE RIDGES ARE ARRANGED IN SQUARES AND I THINK ARE LESS THAN AN INCH HIGH; THEY ARE NOT THE PLATES WITH A SMOOTH SURFACE). AS THE CAR WENT OVER THE PLATES, BRAKING FAILED. THE PLATES ENDED A SHORT DISTANCE BEFORE THE TRAFFIC SIGNAL AND REGULAR PAVEMENT RESUMED. I WAS BARELY ABLE TO STOP IN TIME. I CHECKED ONLINE AND I SEE THAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. SOMEONE SUGGESTED THE ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM. THIS HAPPENED ON S. LEIMERT BLVD. APPROACHING VERNON, BUT THESE PLATES ARE ALL OVER THIS PART OF LOS ANGELES.
