A Space Cushion Behind
for tailgaters! When
you are crowded by a tailgater:
- If you are going to stop, press
your brake lightly a few times before you slow down.
This will warn the tailgater
- Try to "lose" a tailgater
as soon as you safely can. Allow extra room between
your car and the car ahead. This will encourage the
tailgater to pass you and give you more time to slow
down gradually, helping prevent a rear-end collision.
- For really aggressive tailgates
you can't lose, just pull over and let them pass.
