    Phrasal verbs and collocation

    Hi Guys,

    I would like to know the phrasal verb equivalent for the following:

    'to slow down and stop (in a vehicle)' = 'draw up'?
    ''to stop sth. from being seen through being in the way' = 'out of reach'?

    and collocation:

    'to be/feel wide awake'

    Thank you very much in advance. I would really appreciate your help.

    Are 'draw up' and 'pull up' synonyms ?

    ''to stop sth. from being seen through being in the way' = 'to put sth. out of sight' ?

    'to be/feel wide awake' = 'to be completely awake'

    Thank you for your comment
