In New Hampshire, what is the recommended minimum following distance behind the vehicle ahead of you?

Correct answer

  • Four seconds
  • Three seconds
  • Two seconds


The State of New Hampshire Driver's Manual recommends a following distance of at least three seconds behind the vehicle in front of you. You can measure your following distance by noting when the vehicle in front of you passes some stationary object and then counting the seconds that elapse before you reach the same object. If driving conditions are less than ideal, you should increase your following distance by one second for each risk factor: limited visibility, slippery roads, etc.
