I have not noticed any difference in the way the car operates since the light came on. Is it still safe to drive it and what should I be aware of?

Is it safe to drive the vehicle
Toyota Mechanic: EricFromCT, Toyota Technician replied 27 days ago
It is not safe because it is possible that the abs or traction control will not activate when the warning lights are on.

You can still drive the vehicle with no abs but you may want to be aware that it could fail to work if needed. If you haven't noticed anythng different in its performance or handling that you can still drive it. Typically a failed wheel bearing or speed sensor will turn on those lights.
