My car done this once or twice now but it was very quick... which kinda sucks considering I live in a busy city.

I had to replace the ABS sensor in the right rear for this problem. My local gas station had a tool that attached to the wheels and measured the ABS engaging, but his tool wasn't fast enough to catch it. Took it to the dealer and they figured out right away which sensor was bad. Was a $200 repair but it has fixed the problem completely.
