I suppose I feel different about rear ending another car. I always (personal and business) keep proper distance between the car in front of me and myself. If weather sucks I give more. I just have always made that my own personal policy. In most states if you hit someone in the rear its your fault so.

I hope I don't jinx myself
The last accident, ie flooded truck was in 2004. As far as my insurance goes my record is spotless. Ditto on the following too closely, my current truck tips the scales @ 12860#, so it takes a second or two to stop. I do my best to remember the 3-second rule in following others and that just because I can get there quicker doesn't mean I should. It is really bothersome that because I give a fairly large gap between me & the car in front of me, a good number of people try to squeeze into that gap. Some people don't realize what it takes to stop a 7 ton vehicle, especially if they only drive a 1 to 2 ton car. Oh well I'm done gritching, it is Saturday morning & I get to drive 50 miles to a warm dairy case....yeah for Commercial Refrigeration! Double yeah for OT!!!

I ran a Ford 350 into a light pole rather than hit the back end of a Pinto with kids in it.....that was a long time ago. Still glad I made that choice.R2B4BTU
