Why Do People Leave So Much Space?

I snapped this while waiting at a light. The guy next to me left like, three cars lengths ahead of him and I see this all the time. I don't understand it. Why so much room? Do they think their car will somehow lurch forward a few dozen feet before they are able to bring it under control again? Can they not see well? Do they need a running start? What the hey?

As a tidbit, you should stop just far enough behind the person in front of you so you can see their wheels just over your hood. Enough room so that you can turn if an emergency vehicle comes along, but not enough room so that you are taking up more than your fair share.

Seriously, people - the world is small, don't take up so much room. Rude.
