Leave a Buffer for Your Bumper: Study Contradicts Practice of Traffic Light Tailgating

Boreyko1.jpg

Traditional thinking says the closer a car is to a traffic light and the car in front of it, the more likely that car will be to pass through the intersection before the light turns red again. Thanks to new research by Virginia Tech, drivers now have a good reason to dismiss this faulty line of roadway intuition.
