To avoid panic stops, you must
- apply your brakes quickly.
- follow other vehicles closely.
- spot hazards well in advance.
Be alert so that you will know ahead of time when you have to stop. Stopping suddenly is dangerous and is usually a sign of a driver who was not paying attention. If you brake quickly, you might skid and lose control of your vehicle. You will also make it harder for drivers behind you to stop without hitting you. Try to avoid panic stops by spotting hazards well in advance.
