    When entering a parking lot or driveway, don't drop the blade before the curbing, there could be a tiny lip the plow catches, and you could come to a dead stop and bash your head on the ceiling.

    Luckily I was going less than 5mph, can't imagine if I was going any faster, seatbelt may have helped, but I just can't wear it when im plowing, I do too much turning around and moving around.
