    that corner needs to be looked at seriously,its slimy around there when it drizzle.when a vehicle starts sliding people always hold brakes,its going to make the vehicle skid more,just throw it in neutral free up the wheels.and u be safe.

      I don't know about this neutral thing, but always descend a hill in a low gear and drive slower when road is wet. This approach never failed me.
