They haven't tapped the brake line since the 90s.
With the advent of accelerometer base electronics there is no need to tap the brake line. It's been decades since the last time I saw a brake line tap brake controller for sale in a store.
They're probably still out there but they generally are no longer used except maybe by old people who need replacement brake controller for an old vehicle.
Why do you think electric brakes are still so widely used, they aren't only being used by people with outdated vehicles.
