You are following another vehicle. In Wyoming, what is the recommended space cushion between you and the vehicle ahead of you?


The Wyoming Rules of the Road handbook recommends a space cushion of at least two seconds between you and the vehicle in front of you. (Some other authorities recommend a three- or even four-second following distance.) 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, you should increase your following distance. [Isolate Your Vehicle in Traffic, Sharing the Road Safely, Wyoming Rules of the Road]
