Do You Know the 3 Second Rule?

Following to closely is a dangerous driving habit.  To avoid it at any speed, use the 3 second rule.

As the vehicle infront of you passes an object or a shadow on the road, start counting the seconds until your vehicle passes the same object.  If you counted more than 3 seconds you are in great shape.  If you counted less that 3 seconds you are to close to the vehicle infront of  you weather you are going 30 mph or 55 mph.
Try it on your way to work or school today.
