Correct answer

Explanation

Rear-end collisions are common. And the most frequent cause of rear-end collisions is tailgating (following the vehicle ahead too closely). The South Carolina Driver's Manual recommends that you maintain a following distance of at least 3 to 4 seconds behind the vehicle ahead of you.
