TAILGATING FOR ADULTS

When a driver tailgates, or follows another vehicle too closely, it prevents them from avoiding a crash when the vehicle in front of them brakes suddenly.

Adult Tips:

  • Teach your teen to recognize and know the speed limit on the road they are traveling.

  • Teach your teen to maintain a consistent speed.

  • Practice a safe following distance when driving with your teen, and teach them the 3-second following distance rule.

  • When driving with your teen, talk about what they should do if they are being tailgated.
