  • Braking distance is the distance traveled while you’re braking to a stop. It depends on two factors: speed and drag.
  • Drag is the amount of friction between the tires and the surface of the terrain. For example, mud has more drag than dirt. A hard, dry surface has more drag than a hard, wet surface; and ice has very little drag.
