This is why anti-lock brakes were invented, so that untrained drivers
wouldn't throw their cars into skids just because they panicked and

The other advantage is that by allowing the wheel to have slightly less
resistance in the direction they should roll in they will roll in
that direction. Braking at slightly less than the maximum available
traction will therefore allow the driver to steer around an obstacle,
which can't be done with locked tyres.
