Braking on gritted roads
When driving on salted roads, a layer of salt may form on the brake discs and brake linings.
This may extend braking distance. You should therefore maintain a greater safety distance to vehicles in front. In addition, make sure you do the following:
- Brake now and again to remove any layer of salt. Make sure that other road users are not put at risk by the braking.
- Gently depress the brake pedal after finishing driving and before starting your next trip.
