How to Avoid a Tailgating Accident.

One of the most common types of car accidents is rear-end crashes. There are several causes for rear-end crashes including distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, and tailgating. In some cases, a driver may not believe he is in the wrong for a rear-end crash because the driver in front of him stopped suddenly for no apparent reason. However, the law believes otherwise. If you rear end the vehicle in front of you, you are usually presumed to be at fault because you were following too closely or tailgating. The theory is that if you allowed enough distance between you and the vehicle in front of you that you would have ample time to stop even if the driver stopped without warning. Unfortunately, tailgating is a common occurrence and a bad driving habit that many drivers share. However, you can avoid a tailgating accident by keeping these tips in mind the next time you are following another vehicle.
