Tailgating is a common form of aggressive driving that markedly increases your chances of being involved in a crash or a confrontation with another driver.

In this case, the tailgating driver didn't have a chance to safely avert a mattress that had fallen onto the roadway. Video courtesy of KMOV. For the full safety tip about tailgating, click here.
