Question:

At 55 mph, in good conditions, your vehicle will travel about ____ feet in the time that it takes you to react to an object in your path and bring your vehicle to a complete stop.

A 400
Explaination

At 55 mph, in good conditions, your vehicle will travel about 400 feet in the time that it takes you to react to an object in your path and bring your vehicle to a complete stop. A football field (including the two end zones) is 360 feet long. In poor driving conditions (bad weather, bad tires, etc.), it may well take even longer to stop your vehicle.
