The research from BookMyGarage suggests at least 13 million UK drivers have tailgated at some point.

However, almost all motorists (86 percent) said they believe tailgating was a common issue on UK roads.

A massive 57 percent of drivers in the capital admitted to breaking the rules, implying tailgating is more of an issue in urban areas.

“Never pull out into a gap that’s too small or if a car is quickly approaching the space.”
