- When you drive downhill, gravity will cause your car’s speed to increase. To combat this danger, ease off the accelerator pedal once you cross the crest of the hill and apply the brakes as needed.
- If you’re traveling on a long, downhill grade, you can use engine braking to your advantage by shifting into a lower gear, such as Third or Second. Drag from the engine will cause the car to slow down; as a result, the car will be easier to control than if you kept the gear selector lever in Drive while traveling down the hill.
