Re: Just for you townies... @lost all faith
What are you on about?
You should always _follow_ at a safe distance - greater than your stopping distance. But if the distance between you and the thing in front of you is suddenly only 10 feet because it's run unseen into your path there's bugger all you can do about it. We could of course drive at no more than 5mph in order to allow for all possible scenarios, but then we might as well walk.
