    As has been pointed out by others, estimating distance is hard. I'd estimate his speed at maybe 25-35 mph at the point he started braking.

    "Weak sauce" or not, I saw what I saw. :deal

    Ok so lets say he was going 35. Fine.

    You're telling me you saw clouds of blue smoke for 30 feet from his rear tire at that speed?

    I'm saying I saw his rear lock up, and blue smoke pour off it. And he barely avoided rear-ending the minivan in front of him. Exact distance I could not tell you.
