Online Study Guide for Student Drivers

Allowing Yourself Space 

Look ahead and know what is ahead of the vehicle in front of you.

Four out of ten accidents involve rear-end collisions.
This usually occurs because someone was following too closely (tailgating)
Allowing yourself space can be accomplished by applying the
"two second rule."
Pick an object like a road sign or overpass.
As the vehicle in front of you passes the object begin counting "one, one thousand one, one one thousand two" 

If you reach the object before you finish counting, you are following too closely.  

In bad weather increase your count to 3 or 4 seconds.
