Question:

In heavy motorway traffic the vehicle behind you is following too closely. How can you lower the risk of a collision?

A Increase your distance from the vehicle in front
explanation

On busy roads traffic may still travel at high speeds despite being close together. Don’t follow too closely to the vehicle in front. If a driver behind seems to be ‘pushing’ you, gradually increase your distance from the vehicle in front by slowing down gently. This will give you more space in front if you have to brake, and lessen the risk of a collision involving several vehicles.
