Default Transmission Question

Hello,
Should you switch the gear "D" ( drive ) to "2" or "L" while driving if
you are on a steep hilly road to get more thrust or stopping the car and
then switching these gears is the normal way to do it?

Thanks.

XXX. the reason they have 2 or low is so you can use more negine braking
on steep grades. ALso shifting out of OD will get you soem extra braking
doen long grades, need more, go to 2nd, more, go to low. Its not for
starting, just slowing on long grades downhill.
