Every driver should be familiar with ‘the two-second rule’, but are you aware that this minimum vehicle separation guide only applies in good dry conditions?

In wet weather or fog, a different rule applies: you must always be able to stop ‘well within’ the distance you can see to be clear ahead, and that means the distance to the vehicle in front. It’s down to you to enforce this life-saving rule, so don’t forget that when you double your speed, you quadruple your stopping distance!


The less you can see, the slower you must drive.
