This could stop nearly all traffic accidents

There is a simple fix we are overlooking to the problem of traffic accidents. We need to educate and enforce setting the distance we follow each other when we drive. Yes this classically referred to as tailgating.

Think about it next time you are driving. If we would all keep 100 feet between ourselves when going over 10 miles per hour this would eliminate 90% of all traffic accidents. Traffic would still flow because you could stop next to cars but while driving always keep distance between you and the car in front of you.

This would take a few years to implement that’s why the best way would be to teach our youth to start doing this. Get it on the news and soon everyone would leave enough space between one another when going on the highway. Perhaps that is even the best idea, make it a new regulation on the highway to keep 10 car lengths between you and the car in front of you. This would for surely have a great impact on the lives lost each year due to car accidents. We could even use technology to sense the cars around us. It could give us a beep if we are getting to close while going fast.
