Stop one vehicle-length before the descent so you have enough time to make any corrections. Remember your departure angle: Is the back of your vehicle going to hit the ground? Choose the lowest gear possible and select Hill Descent Control (HDC) if available.
If using HDC, try to keep your foot away from the pedal and avoid the temptation to brake. If you do need to brake, apply progressive rather than strong pressure. If you don’t have HDC, just use your lowest gear.
