Test Road Conditions
TEST ROAD CONDITIONS FREQUENTLY
When driving in challenging conditions, determine how much traction, or grip, is available. Make sure that no one is behind you and hit the brakes firmly until the wheels lock up. This will give you a clear indication of the grip available at that particular point in time. Over the course of a long trip, repeat this test to continually monitor grip.
Thanks to you and the rest of the instructors for the great 5th gear course that you put on over the weekend. I learned quite a bit and you guys were all awesome trainers.
