Traction vs. Steering: Gentle on the brakes

Traction vs. Steering: Gentle on the brakes

The suggestion that you accelerate as if there were an egg between your foot and the pedal also applies to braking – except, of course, in emergency situations.

Allow plenty of space to slow down or stop.

And begin early.

You should apply the brake gently at first, then increase pedal pressure progressively as you begin to slow down.

You can brake quite hard as long as the initial application is smooth.
