Driving Tip: Maintain lots of following distance.

...Some people say to count two seconds, but this is a bare minimum of following distance. Give yourself some extra space with the three-second gap. Four seconds is probably getting to be too much, but if you have the luxury of this much following distance, consider yourself fortunate, and enjoy it!

[Excerpt from Driving You Safely p. 28]


  1. This is an important tip because many drivers leave little room between their car and the vehicle in front of them. This can be a disaster if someone has to stop short or an accident occurs ahead of the drivers. This is how multi-car collisions occur.

    1. For sure. IMHO, this one tip could prevent a bunch of accidents each day.
