I bet we all can agree that bumper to bumper driving is so common on Nigerian roads. And this has led to a lot of avoidable multiple crashes some of which have been fatal.

Keeping a safe braking distance could save you from a multiple crash!

Often times cars drive on highways at very close distances from one another, some as close as 20meters or less apart.

It may interest you to know that according to Australia’s leading driving training organisation Murcotts Driving Excellence, it takes averagely 44minutes to bring a vehicle traveling at 65kilometers an hour to a stop.

So to brake safely in the event of an emergency, when driving at 65,kilometers an hour, you need about 50meters between you and the vehicle ahead of you.

The next time you feel the urge to drive bumper to bumper on the Third Mainland Bridge, remember this warning from the Murcotts driving Excellence.
