    slam the brakes

    Wayne Winsor, 39, is alleged to have slammed on the brakes after pulling in front of another driver on Highway 401 early yesterday morning, causing the victim to lose control of his vehicle and crash.

    Hi,
    I am a little confused about this text. Does it say that a driver braked abruptly his car after getting into the front of another car on a high-way and it caused this other car to lose control and crash?
    Thanks a lot.

    (not a professional teacher) That is exactly correct. "Slam on the brakes" does mean braking abruptly, with full force.
