Which of these best describe how to use the brake pedal on a steep downhill grade?

A Release the brake when you are 5 MPH below your safe speed, then let your speed come back up to your safe speed and repeat again, (bring speed down 5 MPH below your safe speed.)

1: Apply the brakes just hard enough to feel a definite slowdown. 2: When your speed has been reduced to approximately five mph below your \"safe\" speed, release the brakes. (This brake application should last for about three seconds.) When your speed has increased to your \"safe\" speed, repeat steps 1 and 2.
