Simple and Effective Rule in Commercial From the 70s Could Save Your Life on the Highway

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on October 16, 2017

Before we get into talking about exactly what this rule is all about, we all have at least one friend who breaks it. I already know that I’m going to be sending this video to a variety of friends and telling them to learn how to drive!

In this day and age, it really seems like just about everybody is in a rush to get where they need to go. Thanks to elevated senses of self-importance and all kinds of different distractions, it really seems like the roadways are going backward in terms of safety. Just think about the last time that you got behind the wheel and how likely it was that you had somebody riding your rear bumper, hanging out just feet from the back of your car to the point where, if you had to emergency brake, there would most certainly be an accident.

This time, we check out a commercial from the 1970s that, at first, seems to be almost laughable in nature, however, when you take a listen to what this commercial had to say, you might just learn an important rule of the road that could end up saving you a headache and sometimes more. With something known as the “two-second rule,” that should probably be more like three or four-second rule, given all of the distractions from behind the wheel today, you can figure out a way to be a safe distance behind the vehicle just by counting a couple of seconds.

Follow along down in the video below that describes the rule and be sure to tell us what you think of this driving safety tip and if you would add anything to the mix. I know that we all have our little quirks when behind the wheel that we prefer to use when driving so let’s hear about your different habits, when in control of a car, that you think are keeping you safe.
