Are tailgating accidents preventable?

Studies show that tailgating accidents are one of the most preventable accidents that occur. Some steps drivers can take are:

  • Always keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the one in front, using the three-second rule
  • Slow down your speed in bad weather
  • If a driver is going too slow, pass them instead of driving too close to them
  • Make sure to give yourself enough time to get to your destination. That way you won’t feel impatient and rushed
  • If there is a vehicle that is tailgating you, find a way to let them pass you
