Default Front disc brakes lock up..

So today I was pulling out of my drive way.. And my front brakes locked up and I left a nice black mark in our white driveway.. I was going like 4 mph and they were just touchy.. After getting a lil speed I can hold the brake andgas down and it must rub the down or something cus then it's fine.. I work at a pep boys in mich and they don't even know what I'm talking about. Any ideas someone said rust and someone said a stuck caliper that mite need grease? Who else had this happen?

mine do that once and a while, usually after i get done going through mud or puddles, but not immediatly after, usually i go home and it happens an hour later or the next morning..whenever i drive it again after its not been running for a while, i needed new brakes really bad and it hasnt done it since i got them changed so maybe thats the problem

Mine does that when it rains, but only the first time or two I use the brakes after it's been sitting a while. It doesn't matter if I try to apply the brakes slowly, they just become ultra-sensitive in the rain for some reason.

Are both fronts working equally? If one side is not working, the other side will lock up easier.
