BRAKING. Avoid sudden stops because constantly making such stops may cause failure of braking and driving parts.
When stopping on slippery pavement, alternately and smoothly apply and release brakes to prevent skidding. When
slowing for a stop, leave clutch engaged as long as possible to utilize the braking effect of the engine.
When forward speed has dropped to a little above idling speed, push clutch pedal in, and brake to a stop. Shift to neutral,
release clutch pedal and set parking brake.
