Mine came from a vehicle going the other way, a motor home towing a POS Subaru on a rough section of the ALCAN just before hitting the border leaving Canada and entering Alaska, low speed, no one traveling my way in front of me.I vote “no”. When I was younger, I had an older body repairman tell me to slow down and stop tail-gating. If course, being young and headstrong, it was my right to do both!
At 51, I’ve realized that old coot was correct. I do 55-60 and stay back 4-5 car lengths. Zero chips in paint. Zero sand-blasting of windshield.
Makes me recall my dad’s lecture of “You don’t have to like the answer, son. But you’re part of the problem if you choose to ignore facts.”
I hated that one.
