The Importance of Keeping Distance

All drivers are aware of the various hazards of being on the roads these days – Whether it is the perils of driving in snow and ice or other drivers travelling too fast in their own vehicles, being behind the wheel nowadays requires all drivers to be alert and on their guard.

One of the many dangers posed is the driver in front braking abruptly, which will cause you to react rapidly – Failure to brake in enough time and safely will likely result in an unfortunate accident.

So how to avoid this danger? Simple – Keep to the 2 second rule. Maintaining this safe distance behind other drivers should allow you sufficient time to react quickly and safely. But remember, stopping distance increases in poor conditions!

Safe driving from Britannia!
