When you’re driving it’s important to be aware of how much space is behind your car so that you can avoid accidents. Here are some tips on how to judge distance behind your car:

1. Use your mirrors. Your car’s mirrors are designed to give you a good view of what’s behind you so use them!

4. Make sure you’re not tailgating. Tailgating is when you follow another car too closely and it’s dangerous. Make sure you leave enough space between you and the car in front of you.

5. Use common sense. If you can’t see clearly slow down and be extra cautious.

By following these tips you can help ensure that you’re driving safely and avoiding accidents.

## How do you judge if you are too close to the car in front of you?

Answer: There are a couple ways.

One is to estimate the time it would take you to stop if the car in front of you brake abruptly.

If you think you would not be able to stop in time then you are following too closely.

Another is the “3 second rule.

” Pick a stationary object by the side of the road and once the car in front of you passes it start counting.

You should not reach the object before you’ve counted to 3.
