Question:

You must allow a minimum _________ following distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.

A three-second
Explaination

To have enough time to react to emergencies and avoid collisions, you must keep a cushion of space between your vehicle and other vehicles. You should allow at least a three-second following distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. The three-second rule is a minimum for ideal driving conditions. Increase your following distance by one second for each adversity factor (rain, heavy traffic, etc.) that you encounter.
