2 Second Rule

Watch the vehicle in front of you pass a landmark such as a sign or tree at the side of the road. As it passes the landmark, start counting.

If you pass the landmark within 2 seconds, you are following too closely. If you are towing a trailer or the road surface is wet or slippery, increase your distance by counting to 4 seconds.
