About ten years ago I totaled my car that was the result of tailgating (the car ahead of me had way way wayyy better brakes than me), and as a result I've had an intense fear of tailgating ever since. If I'm the passenger in a car whose driver is tailgating (especially at high speeds) I completely freak out.
The point of this is that I always follow at least a two second rule, never suspecting that by doing so at all times I've actually been doing some good for my fellow man.

This is the worst kind of discrimination. The kind against ME! ~ Bender
It sounds like it could work. The people might not get to where they are going any faster, but at least the traffic would keep moving instead of stopping and going constantly.
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams
One thing that this would help with is when you have those days that its raining so dang hard that you can barely see 10ft in front of ya. I was doing what the guy in the video was doing (though not realizeing the effects of it like he did) when it was raining and I know that if I had been driving like everyone else I would have hit the car in front of me due to his constant slamming of the breaks. As it was I came damn close to hitting him anyways thanks to the rain.
