Don’t take risks as a tailgater
KEEPING a safe following distance is probably the most crucial part of driving.
A decent following distance allows the driver to react timeously and appropriately in case of an emergency, such as when someone up ahead decides to perform a dangerous manoeuvre with bad consequences.
Different conditions ask for different following distances. When it is raining, for instance, you should stay further away from the car in front of you.
The same goes for night-time driving.
Ask yourself whether you have enough space to react if something happens, and if not, adjust your following distance accordingly.
