When you take your car off of the comfort of pavement to drive along a gravel road, you’re going to notice a significant difference. You sacrifice traction, which is going to affect both your speed and handling. It is best to slow down significantly when you first start driving on gravel to get a sense of your reduced capabilities, and to avoid throwing up rocks to damage vehicles behind you. If you know that you’re going to be driving on gravel, you can also benefit from checking your tire pressure; pressure that is either too high or too low is going to compromise your ability to drive.
