Close Following

The film studies how close to the person in front people drive and how close they think is safe, with some surprising results.

If you have ever travelled on a busy, high-speed road you will have noticed, or been involved in, situations where one vehicle is travelling very closely to the vehicle in front. In this short film Sophie Raworth investigates the nature of driving too close to the vehicle in front and what effects this can have. The "2 second rule" which is suggested in the film, is a good way of assessing your stopping distance in good conditions.
