Do not apply the brakes immediately or attempt to pull off the road as this may cause a loss of control.

When the vehicle has slowed to such a speed that it is safe to do so, brake carefully and pull off the road. Drive off the road as far as possible and park on a firm level ground. If you are on a divided highway, do not park in the median area between the two traffic lanes.

3.Have all passengers get out of the vehicle. Be sure they all get out on the side of the vehicle that is away from traffic.
