1 of 6
What does the stopping distance depend on?
The thinking and braking distance.
2 of 6
What is the equation for stopping distance?
Stopping distance= thinking distance + braking distance
3 of 6
What affect does speed have on the stopping distance?
The faster a car travels, the longer the stopping distance because it means the thinking is longer.
4 of 6
What factors affect stopping distance?
Tiredness, alcohol, drugs, distractions
5 of 6
What do these factors do to the stopping distance?
They all increase the time needed to think to brake. This then means the stopping distance is greater.
