Is this the "Only a fool forgets the two-second rule" scenario? Where you count the time it takes to pass the same point in the road that the car in front has passed and if it takes less time than it takes to chant the above rhyme, you're too close. Or am I behind the times..?
If you are, then that makes two of us.

People follow very close here, and it's a bad habit that's easy to fall into. I murmer "one not, two not, three" fairly regularly when I'm driving.

Why the count to 3? Because it's easier to make sure you have a little bit of leeway than it is to bash the dents out of the car's nose.
