Tailgating: A Menace On The Road And How To Avoid It

Tailgating is when a car drives too close either to the car in front or back, so risking a collision if the car in front or back brakes suddenly. This is quite rightly one of the most annoying driving habits especially in the traffic. Sometimes drivers are completely unaware that they’re tailgating. Others, however, actively try to pressure drivers until they can speed past.

Dealing with tailgaters is a difficult task that can try our patience; the main advice is to let them pass when it’s safe to do so, especially with a tailgater that’s pressuring you. With the drivers that aren’t aware that they’re tailgating, avoid braking sharply and gradually slow down.

Although this won’t completely eliminate the chances of being rear-ended, the damage will certainly be reduced.
