The conditions are good and dry. When should you use the ‘two-second rule’?
In good conditions, the ‘two-second rule’ can be used to check the distance between your vehicle and the one in front. This technique works on roads carrying faster traffic. Choose a fixed object, such as a bridge, sign or tree. When the vehicle ahead passes this object, say to yourself ‘Only a fool breaks the two-second rule.’ If you reach the object before you finish saying this, you’re too close.
