From the ABS slide:
" a central controller monitors the rotation of the car's wheels; when the system senses a differential in the RPMs, it signals pressure valves to either slow of speed of the offending wheels. "

I miss the old days when copy editors were employed by major publications such as Popular Science.

It's not just the grammar. I can't even figure out what they were trying to say. If it's just based on a difference in the RPM, how does it choose which wheel is the 'offending' wheel?
