4. Use controlled braking

If you are in an emergency and there is no space to the side to steer out of the way of a crash, use controlled braking.

The controlled braking method for emergency stops.

To use the controlled brake method, you must apply the brakes as hard as possible without locking the wheels. Keep the movement of the wheels very small while doing this.

If you need to make a major steering change or if the wheels are locked, remove the brakes. Re-apply the brakes as soon as possible.
