What is the safest way to control your speed on a downgrade?

On very long downgrades, your brakes won't be able to do the job on their own. However, if you select the correct low gear, engine braking will slow your vehicle. This will allow you to preserve your brakes for particularly steep areas instead of using them all the time and having them fade.
