Driving on the motorway can sometimes be a nervous experience; the speeds involved make everything more ‘high risk.’ If you see a driver randomly nipping between lanes or pressurising other drivers out of the fast lane you are likely to want to ‘keep an eye’ on them – so that you can try and stay out of their way.
While driving on a country road - you may also have this issue. You are unsure of the road layout, it seems there are many twists, turns and dips - you are being sensibly cautious and driving at a safe speed. The driver behind you seems to be in a great hurry and their vehicle is all you can see in your rear-view mirror. You start to feel under pressure to speed up, but you don’t know the road and you don’t feel safe doing so. You are praying for a long clear stretch so they can just overtake you.
You may not be surprised to hear that in a recent study – tailgating was marked as the number one greatest driving fear.
According to Highways England 1 in 8 road casualties are caused by tailgating, with over 100 people a year being seriously injured or killed. They have recently launched a ‘Don’t be a Space Invader’ campaign to highlight the dangers.
