How do you find out how many seconds of following distance space you have?

Count the number of white dashes on the road markings between you and the vehicle ahead of you.

Wait until the vehicle ahead passes a shadow on the road, a pavement marking, or some other clear landmark. Then count off the sonds until you reach the same spot.

Count how many seconds it takes you to stop at any given speed.

At speeds over 40 mph, count one second for each 10 feet of vehicle length and add 1 second for safety.
