The Hazards of Tailgating
When considering reckless driving accidents, most people imagine drunk driving or a blatant disregard for safety signs and restrictions. Unfortunately, there are many ways that motorists can endanger others that do not include acts of extreme negligence. Tailgating is hazardous for both the car that is being followed as well as the car doing the following.

Things to Remember
Many people do not realize they are tailgating or fail to acknowledge the potential dangers in their rush to get to their destination. Some ways to make sure that you are avoiding this hazardous driving activity include:
- Drive slowly in inclement weather, giving yourself extra space between vehicles
- Allow for more space between cars as you increase driving speed
- Give yourself more time to brake if you have a heavier vehicle or one loaded with cargo or a trailer
Although many people may overlook the risks of following too closely, tailgating can result in devastating physical injuries should there be a collision between the two automobiles.
