Background: As a Fleet Risk-Control Manager in a major city, our drivers are taught to reduce their "driver reaction distance" (gas to brake time) by entering into a "preliminary pad grip," (brake pad to rotor with minor, unnoticeable contact); this is also known as "gripping pad."
Example One:

Driver: "It's not my fault I hit that truck that shot out of the mouth of that blind alley."

Fleet Safety Director: "Yea, but you should have been "gripping pad" going through there..."

Example Two:

Driver: "Don't blame me that I knocked that person down; she came out of nowhere."

Fleet Safety Director: "You should have been "gripping pad" going through there with all the people present!"
