Quick Tip: Spacing between clickable elements

If adjacent links, buttons, checkboxes, or other controls are too close, they can be difficult to accurately activate for users who may not have fine motor control, those using small-screen mobile devices, or others. Ensure that clickable elements have adequate spacing between them. For small clickable elements, such as checkboxes, ensure that there is a sufficiently large clickable area, including the associated form control label.
