You are following another vehicle. In Maryland, what is the recommended following distance?


You can measure your following distance by counting the time that elapses from when the vehicle in front of you passes some object to when your vehicle reaches that same object. Under ideal driving conditions, you should always maintain a gap of at least three seconds between you and the vehicle in front. If driving conditions are poor, you should increase your following distance. [D. Following Distance, Section III - Basic Driving, Maryland Driver's Manual]
