Video: How Following Too Closely Could Ruin Your Day

Here in the days of camera phones and GoPros, video is catching all kinds of life events that previously were only documented in their aftermath. Case in point, why this driver was taping such a boring stretch of road can't be explained, however it is a good testament as to why your eyes belong on the road, making sure you maintain a safe following distance.

Due to all accounts, everyone involved was unharmed, and are probably counting their blessings right now. To add a frightening fact from AAA, roughly 25,000 accidents similar to this happen each year, with about 100 of them being fatal. Ouch.
