Dangers of tailgating
Drivers have a responsibility to remain a reasonable distance behind other cars. The gap should remain wide enough that the driver can stop in time to avoid a crash. The amount of space depends on several factors, including speed, weather, traffic and road conditions. Drivers should adjust their speed to create more space in certain situations, such as:
- Higher speeds of travel
- Wet or slick roadways
- Thick fog, rain or smoke
- Dim lighting
- Traffic congestion
- Narrow roadway with no shoulder
- Poorly maintained roads
- Likelihood of road debris after high winds
- Passing an accident or disabled vehicle
- Driving through a construction zone
Even under poor conditions, a driver who slams into your back fender is liable for damages.
