I have long maintained that in practicing the safest way to brake while operating a motor vehicle was to always keep the your car in gear. I've read discussions where putting your transmission into neutral will allow the 'driving force' to not come into play which could allow the vehicle to accelerate rather than decelerate. I have always thought that keeping the transmission engaged allows for better control. Going into skids, operating on curves and slippery pavement all call for specific action but I have always thought having control over the car by being able to accelerate at any given time was the better practice. Any thoughts on this? Thanks for the time.
