Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:
Figured I’d find the idiot here. Have you ever been in rush hour traffic? You don’t get to have a large gap between the cars. Someone cuts in front of you.
I always get flustered and upset with that....I dont handle traffic well always, but I try to give more space than I need to feel less stressed and more comfortable; but, it's inevitable that, every time you do that, someone fills in your "comfort buffer".
If you are in a smaller vehicle than the one in front of you and can't see past it well, trying to give more distance sometimes works.....sometimes doesn't.
As a person not on the scene, I don't have a right to judge. I would, however, certainly give you a benefit of the doubt. I mean, if a vehicle in front of you slows/brakes (showing tail lights) etc....you should be able to slow in time or else YES you are too close. But, if a vehicle in front of you smashes into something causing it to near instant stop with no warning, tail lights, etc.....well, I don't feel I could say it was something easily reactable (made up word?) to at all, potentially...
Not starting a super big debate. Just my feeling on it.
Like I said, doesn't even matter at this point; versus health of the people involved.
