Topic: Controlling Your Speed
Previous TopicNext TopicHelp
When driving off-the road, either in two wheel drive or four wheel drive, you should always drive at slow speeds (25 miles per hour or less). Dirt and gravel roads pose many hazards and are not designed for anything but slow travel. Even on long stretches of open dirt road, keep your speed down to minimize accidents caused by skidding on loose dirt or gravel. Many off-road drivers have ended up in the roadside ditch or creek because they skidded in a curve on a roadway surfaced with loose material.

Anytime you are moving through rough terrain, such as over big rocks, or anytime you are climbing or descending steep hills, drive extremely slowly. Think of your SUV as a giant spider slowly creeping over objects instead of as a monster truck plowing through obstacles at high speeds. Your small SUV will not move big rocks! It will just break into pieces from the hard jolts it will receive.

If you give your SUV the opportunity to work it's way slowly through obstacles you will find that it is very effective at doing so. You will reduce the risk of injury to yourself and damage to your vehicle.
