I had always been told that you should stay a car's length away from the car in front of you for every 10 mph. That seems like a good rule of thumb. I see all kinds of nonsense on the road, though. There is no excuse for foolishly driving too close to the car in front of you. If the car before you has to brake for any reason, you will collide. You will not get to your destination any sooner by tailgating. I have seen a lot of collisions that would not have happened if the back driver had let there be more space between the cars. Use reason when you drive. Keep your distance.
