When you're about to start down a steep downgrade, what should you do?

A
Explaination
When you're about to start down a steep downgrade, shift into a low gear and use engine braking to slow your vehicle. Don't try to downshift after your speed has already built up. You will not be able to shift into a lower gear. You may not even be able to get back into any gear and all engine braking effect will be lost.
