Explaination

So that you'll be able to safely avoid hazards ahead of you, the Rhode Island Driver's Manual recommends the "three-second rule": Maintain a following distance of three seconds behind the vehicle in front of you. You can measure your following distance by noting when the vehicle in front of you passes some stationary object and then counting the seconds that elapse before you reach the same object. If driving conditions are poor or hazardous, you should increase your following distance.
