That is true with a consistent road surface. That was not the case in the situations I mentioned above. Both crashes happened at night while braking approaching an intersection. The first time I hit a patch of of fine sand, the second was an oil patch on a wet road. Both times the front locked and I was on the ground before I knew what happened.
