If the descent is steep enough, it's not that you don't have to pulse, it's just a really long glide. If there's a stop at the bottom you're not in a p&g situation, you're determining the best way to approach a stop.

Every road is different, almost every time. It's what keeps driving fun, and what makes the texters so dangerous.
