In which of the following situations should you increase your following distance?


Increase your following distance whenever you're following a driver whose rear view is blocked. This includes drivers of buses, large trucks, and cars towing trailers. Also increase your following distance whenever your vehicle may take longer to stop, such as on wet or unpaved roads, which provide poor traction. When you're being passed, increase your following distance to make it easier for the passing vehicle to merge back in front of you safely.
