DIS­TANCE GIVES SPACE FOR SAFETY TO MOVE

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

LEAV­ING a safe dis­tance be­tween your car and the one in front is paramount. You must al­low enough space to avoid a crash if the ve­hi­cle in front of you brakes sud­denly. Tail­gat­ing is one of the top causes of mi­nor and se­ri­ous mo­tor ve­hi­cle crashes in WA, closely aligned with inat­ten­tion. Judg­ing dis­tances and speeds of mov­ing traf­fic is not an easy task. Tak­ing that bit of ex­tra care will greatly re­duce your risk of crash­ing. Fail­ure to keep a safe dis­tance be­hind ve­hi­cles is a $200 fine and two de­merit points. - Sergeant Mish Iskra.
