When I got my first car with ABS and Traction Control I really had a blast on dry and in snow, playing with each.
The second day I had the LT I tried the ABS in a panic stop to see if the sensation and the action were close to what I thought they would be.
One concern is in cornering if I applied front brake at what point does the linked kick in and apply rear which I really don't want. And what happens when my rear wheel skips and is not in contact with the ground?
I unfortunately am stuck doing a lot of slab to get places these days as they are the first to clear after snow and cant trust my "normal" twisties because of frozen run off and shade/sun issues. So I have not had to deal with insane drivers too much. Or getting cocky and over running my favorite roads.
I don't hate them, I just don't ever lull myself into sleep by thinking something other then my common sense, can keep me alive better.
