Of the thousands of motor vehicle accident cases that are tried in courts over the years, following too closely is the most common cause of those accidents.
Three to five feet between you and the car in front of you is NOT enough distance if that car stops suddenly, or if your own driving is distracted momentarily by a child or a cell phone. Three to five feet is NOT enough distance if the car behind you rams into you and pushes you forward. Why do you drive so closely to the car in front of you? It’s a habit, and this is one habit you should change. Drive attentively and check your rearview mirror often. If the driver behind you is following too closely, change lanes if possible and let him pass you. He’s your worst nightmare!
