Best Practice: Braking

Before You Start – Learn To Stop

Braking is one of the BASIC elements of safe driving – and one of the most important.

Getting it wrong can lead to all kinds of dangerous situations, such as:

  • Skidding.
  • Loss of control.
  • Rear-end collisions.

There are three S’s of braking: SLOWLY, SMOOTHLY and STEADILY! Remembering these techniques will reduce your chances of encountering any problems when coming to a stop.
