How fast are your reactions? Just been browsing braided brake lines and found the following site from HEL (via Camskill website):
Interesting facts if nothing else, proves why you need to be so far behind the car in front at all times - at 70mph, on average you travel 15.5 metres in the 0.5 seconds it takes you to react and hit the brake pedal. That's 3-4 car lengths!
So, fun and serious all at the same time!
I averaged 0.4154 seconds with a best score of 0.375 seconds. This drops me to 12.5 metres or so, a car length saved in my stopping distance from 70mhp
How do you fare? All those who think they are safe tailgating, think again!
