What do retarders do?

Retarders, of which there are many types, apply braking power directly onto the driving wheels, which reduces brake wear and tear, and means you will not have to use your brakes as often. Retarders, however, may also make you more likely to skid when you have poor wheel traction, so turn them off in bad weather.
