If you still have good brakes then yes. Just your ABS system may not be working. From what you describe it is probably a wheel sensor or a wire got torn off.


I suspect you damaged the wheel speed sensor on your left front wheel. You will still have brakes but this is winter so you really need your ABS to be working. I would not wait 4 weeks if it were my car.
