Mercedes-Benz GLC : Notes on driving / Notes on driving on salt-treated roads

The braking effect is limited on salt-treated roads.

Therefore, observe the following notes:

  • Due to salt build-up on the brake discs and brakepads, the braking distance can increase considerably or result in braking only on one side
  • Maintain a much greater safe distance to the vehicle in front

To remove salt build-up:

  • Brake occasionally while paying attention to the traffic conditions
  • Carefully depress the brake pedal at the end of the journey and when starting the next journey
