Follow at a safe distance. Use the three-second rule. Increase your following distance in bad weather or poor visibility................. http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/brochures/fast_facts/ffdl22.htm

b. 3 seconds. Works at all speeds, which is why they started using that. Pick a point, a sign, a bridge, whatever on the road. When the car in front of you passes, start counting. If you get to 3 or better, you have a safe distance between you.
