I drove more than a hundred miles this past week in the Rockies. I witnessed many drivers who were clueless about the physics of car driving, hence this Public Service Announcement:
When starting a curve in the road, please accelerate slightly through the curve. Whatever you do, DO NOT BRAKE IN THE CURVE. You MUST slow before you get into the curve, so that you can apply a little pressure to the gas pedal to accelerate through the curve. There are several ways to slow, one of which is to coast before you reach the curve or to brake slightly in a controlled manner before you start turning.
One of the worst things you can do is to enter the curve at too high a speed which causes you to brake in the curve itself.
Anyways, you can go 10 to 20 mph faster if you do this.
If you didn't learn this when you were taught how to drive, please stay off the mountain roads or use the slow vehicle pullouts often.
Remember: Accelerate slightly around the curve. Do not brake in the curve.
