@Mangymutt -- Yep. If someone in front of you does something unexpected something bad is about to happen and (assuming you're not right up his *******) you have warning of it BEFORE your reaction time window gets invaded. It's saved my ass a few times over the years.|
The other thing they don't teach but should (I DID teach my kid this) is that IF you decide to brake hard AT THE SAME TIME you need to quickly glance in the rearview -- if you're going to get HIT FROM THE BACK then a maximum performance stop may NOT be your best move. Yeah it won't be legally your fault if you get nailed by the ******* not paying attention behind you (or following too close) but the goal is not to get hit AT ALL.
