For example, it is common to encounter terrain situations where the top of the hill has eroded to a point that the hill peak rises very sharply. Avoid hard braking. This will possibly result in a straight line slide of the vehicle. Again, the best advice is to safely reduce speed in anticipation of a maneuver so to give yourself time and distance to regain total ve- hicle control before it spins out of your control. Make sure you dry the brakes by applying them several times after the vehicle leaves the water.
Mud or marsh lands may be encountered near water. They will affect the steering of vehicle, possibly causing it to slide and tip over especially at high speeds.
In addition, braking distance may be affected.
