  • Shifting to a lower gear on a downhill grade also allows you to reduce wear and tear on your brakes. If you are able to drive without constantly applying the brakes, you’ll also avoid the danger of brake fade. Brake fade occurs when a car’s brakes overheat during repeated brake application. Overheated brakes are unable to stop a car in the same braking distance they can achieve when they are cooler.
