Exactly. One thing I emphasized to my kids when teaching them to drive is BACK OFF the car in front of you. There is no sense in following someone close. You're not going to get anywhere faster. You're just going to cut down your reaction time to stop.

It's a major problem anyone can see any day, any time, on the highway, streets and back roads. It's the number one cause of rear ending.

I ALWAYS give ample room between myself and the car in front of me. How many people have I hit from behind? Zero.

When you give "ample" room, doesn't the guy in the next lane pull into the space you left?

I was going to make that exact point. If you give enough space, someone else will fill it.

I would like to ask, is Bruce Jenner being charged solely with this death? He didn't cause the original crash and without that, his contribution wouldn't have happened.

Ain't life unkind?"

If you hit someone from behind it is basically always your fault. You must leave yourself room to stop. If someone is in front of you it is your responsibility to not hit them, even if they stop unexpectedly in the middle of highway.
