When train *throttles*

< Previous | Next >


I'm trying to figure out which word to use in respect to a train throttling as it seems to be a figurative use of the word throttle and for the choking ones I am finding, I can't seem to identify any of them with the sentence I'm translating.

Sentence in question: "When riding the subway trains with her, adjust your position relative to her so that if and when the train throttles, you are in a position to catch her if she stumbles."

My attempt: Quand vous prenez le métro avec elle, ajustez votre position par rapport à elle de sorte que si et quand le train a des vibrations, vous êtes dans une position pour l'attraper, si elle trébuche.

Merci d'avance.
