How do you control a car at high speed?

I’m really about driving really fast on the interstate; I just worry about not being able to slow down in time if I need to. What are some good tips for driving a car at a high speed?

Getting used to driving on the interstate can definitely be stressful! However, I’m happy to say that driving with proper posture and awareness can make high speed driving less scary!
You should only drive at high speed on the highway or on a professional race track. You should begin by fixing your posture: bringing your knees together square and locking your legs into place with a slight bend.
Driving at high speed is all about making small, controlled movements so that you don’t over-maneuver the vehicle. Controlling your throttle and braking through turns is also very important for maintaining control of a vehicle at high speeds.
Keeping all of this in mind, just make sure to look ahead of yourself, constantly scan your mirrors, and take a deep breath. You’ve got this!
If you find yourself commuting to work on the highway a lot, it might save you money to look at different policy rates, as some plans will cost you extra for higher mileage. To compare plans quickly and easily, check out the Jerry app—we’ll get you customized quotes from top providers, so all you have to do is pick the plan that works best for you. And once you’ve chosen one, we’ll even help you switch!
Best of luck with driving on the highway; you’re going to be great!
