Driving On Flat, Dry Pavement
Use the following guidelines when driving on flat, dry pavement:
- If driving on flat, dry, open stretches with a light load and greater slowing power is not required, place the progressive braking switch in the LOW position.
- If you find you are still using the service brakes, move the switch to a higher position until you do not need to use the service brakes to slow the vehicle down.
- If you are carrying a heavier load and road traction is good, move the progressive braking switch to the HIGH position.
- Check your progressive braking switch often for proper position, since road conditions can change quickly. Never skip a step when operating the progressive braking switch.
Always go from OFF to LOW, and then to a higher position.
