JIM LUFF DRIVING GEM: You know you have seen it before where a group of cars are tailgating and one suddenly stops and the others all plow into each other. This is called the domino effect.
 
If you find yourself sandwiched in a group like this, CHANGE LANES or if you can't decrease the amount of space between yourself and the car in front of you to give yourself plenty of time to hit the brakes and warn the guy behind you that you are slowing.  Allow everyone to have enough REACTION SPACE!
