Good for you for not tailgating and for keeping your distance from other vehicles.
Something as simple as keeping a safety margin may have saved your life yesterday. I'm truly amazed at the number of people (both riders and drivers) who just don't get that. It falls under the catigory of "be ready for the unexpected". A really good rider isn't the one who can perform evasive maneuvers, a really good rider is the one who doesn't have to perform evasive maneuvers.
