The Four-Second Rule
Failure to adhere to the “four-second rule” leads to multiple-car pileups. Safety authorities recommend allowing yourself four seconds to be able to stop behind the vehicle in front of you. Experts say that it takes approximately 127 feet to come to a stop when traveling at 50 mph. Many drivers tailgate other vehicles at higher speeds; this problem can have fatal consequences.
