AbstractA method and apparatus is provided for controlling the handling dynamics of a vehicle, in particular a commercial vehicle, fitted with an ABS system. The method requires varying the brake pressure of the vehicle in the event of an impending wheel lock up to prevent excessive wheel slippage. The method and apparatus are configured such that any decrease in the roll-over stability of the vehicle while negotiating a curve is detected with an ABS system.
