Social distancing for vehicles

Tailgating should be punished

COVID-19 has enforced governments to put sanctions in place for our own safety, and I don’t think anyone can argue with that.

But when this is over…and it will be at some point, I would like to see at least one of the sanctions to remain…sort of…

It’s not the 1.5 metres for people – but to transfer this rule to vehicles, albeit with a distance change (1.5 metres is of course too close).

Tailgating should be punished

There has been less vehicles on the road. And I am sure I can’t be the only one who is enjoying the fact that there is less traffic on the roads.

It was literally two days ago when some dick-head just wanted to drive as close to the arse of my car as humanly possible – they would have been breaking the 1.5 metre rule if it were for vehicles.

So, I think we need to enforce this rule for the roads.

I find it incredible that a survey report was compiled in 2017 in regards to rear-end crashes – all you have to do is get in the car, and drive for 15 minutes…you will either see it or experience it.

It is especially rife on Australian freeways.

The tailgating issue has never been properly enforced with the correct punishment…and it should be – it’s bloody dangerous.
