Free set of car stickers for your car or van (plus free postage). UK only limited number per household.

The government's Space Invader ‘Tailgating’ campaign aims to reduce the number of people who are killed and seriously injured on our roads.

Driving too close to the vehicle in front is dangerous and can make it impossible to avoid a collision in an emergency. Tailgating was the third most common contributory factor in deaths and serious injuries on UK motorways in 2016.

In fact, tailgating is the biggest single bugbear that drivers have about other motorway users. Nearly 9 out of 10 (87%) drivers say they’ve experienced or witnessed it.

“Tailgating is a factor in 1 in 8 casualties on the strategic road network.”

I always leave a safe gap between myself and the car in front, so any bmw or Audi driver has somewhere to dart in to.
Edited by: "davelfc" 1st May
The only problem is people driving closer so they can read what it says
If someone does it to me I do a sharp break and drive 10 miles under the limit
Desperately need something for those who wont move to the left when theres ample room to do so and those who hog the middle lane.

"If you can read this, you're a tailgating ****."

May be worth adding Van as well, since they have sizes for both cars and vans.
Best to order 1 for a van even if you're only driving a Nissan micro or a fiat, just so the writing in big enough to be read by those behind you
I ordered these last time it was posted on here I never received them

I have a car sized one anddd they can be read easily
I always find that my windscreen needs a rinse if I'm tailgated. Several times...
But I'm also with those who get very frustrated by the inconsiderate people who could allow others to overtake but just obstruct the flow of traffic. I suspect this is at the root cause of many accidents.
I've always wondered if seatbelts really save lives since they were made compulsory? What if everyone had to wear a cheese wire across their neck instead?....folk would drive a LOT more carefully I think.

Hopefully they will repel the tailgaters more than the L plates on my driving school car seem to attract them
To be honest im thinking of getting one made as a t shirt. Boundaries people!!! No i don't want to smell your breath or feel like ive got to moonwalk backwards till im pinned against the nearest obstacle!
We don’t need stickers, we need more police to address the issue and ticket offenders.

Unfortunately they have more important things to do. You probably don’t realise how few police officers there are.

They send you a confirmation email you have to respond to to proceed with order. Also the stickers are very poor quality, the outer layer with the print peeled off almost straight away.

I know exactly how few there are, if you want figures over 20,000 fewer between March 2010 and March 2018. My post said we need more, not that need the ones that remain to divert their attentions from what they are currently doing.
I remember Argos or somewhere selling digital signs that scroll messages you can type in to put on your back window. Whatever happened to those?
This post comes up so much, not sure why. I guarantee the person who orders this sticker is someone who gets irate at anyone up their behind, in a 50 (while they drive at 35) only to speed off in a 30, going 35/40. Guarantee it, see this every day.

I cant be behind them, with a train of cars at the busiest time of day, flashing them to go quicker, but they can speed in a 30, past a school.

Anyone who says it isnt a target - do you go 30mph on a dual carriageway?

They could prove you brake checked the vehicle. You gotta be careful.

Dont have the Lupo anymore sadly, I miss that car so much.

They haven't caught on. You can see why, with all the instances of road rage. I don't even use my hooter when a driver cuts me up or whatever, any more, in case they're a psychopath. :-D
Great campaign. Really wish people would be more considerate driving.

Last year shortly after this campaign I was space invaded by a National Express coach only to realise later that they had a huge poster of the campaign on the back of the coach. How ironic.
Thanks for the heads up - ordered 2 for the household! I tend not to brake when slowing down (I prefer to use gravity) so any tailgaters tend to quickly stay away once they realise I'm slowing down and not using my brakes!

Odd, had it last time round?
I have them on my car - people still tailgate and don't have a clue about separation distances.

Relatable.
I'm learning to drive in a bright orange car with big L plates etc.
Still doesnt stop the idiots.

Or buses pulling out right in front of me either apparently, to then stop at the bus stop practically opposite the junction and obstruct the road slightly
Stay safe
Stay back
Stay 2nd amendment
Since I got bashed up the rear I've installed a dash cam on the back window too. In my case the guy simply left without leaving his details. The amount of people that back off once they see the dash cam pointing straight at them 😁
