Common theory questions

What is the reaction distance?

The reaction distance is the distance the car travels from when you discover an obstacle or a hazard (for example, an elk crossing the road) until you apply the brakes. It is only your reaction time and the car's speed that determines how long the reaction distance will be.

The reaction distance increases proportionally in relation to the speed. For example, if the speed doubles, the reaction distance also doubles.
