This distance your vehicle travels while stopping is?total stopping distance

The total stopping distance includes the perception distance, reaction time and braking distance. The distance that your vehicle is traveling and then pressing on the brake after seeing a hazard, is the total stopping distance.

Perception Distance, Reaction Distance and Braking Distance

Perception Distance + Reaction Distance+ Braking Distance.

When traveling 30-mph, the braking distance is 45-feet, and the total stopping distance is 75-feet. This is the length of a semi-truck and trailer.

It is the total stopping time.

85 feet

Yes, friction affects stopping distance. The greater the friction the lower the stopping distance; the lower the friction the greater the stopping distance.

Total Stopping Distance

The faster you are going the longer the stopping distance is. The slower you are going the shorter the stopping distance is. E.G. Speed of a car Thinking distace Breaking distance Total stopping distance mph meters meters meters 30 9 14 23 40 12 24 36 50 15 38 53 70 21 75 96

Stopping distance at 30mph = 23m
