Default Wheels Locking up..

Hi this morning I was driving my 2001 PT Cruiser and i slowly started breaking and all of a sudden my tires locked up and I started to slide sideways.. :/
This isnt the first time my tires have locked up like that it happened before and i ended up having a fender bender with someone. Any idea what might be the issue?

Ontario+Cold= Ice in driveway?? Just kidding.

Sorry I can't help you. If they had been locked up when starting, I may think they froze after you parked.

I had the exact same thing happen to me last winter. I was driving slowly and pumping the brakes, and darn near hit a car that was parked at the side of the street!!! If someone had been in front of me, I would have hit them! My husband had to take the car in to get the rear brakes adjusted. That must have been the problem because it hasn't done it since!
