This charge usually occurs when a rear end collision happens. Typically the driver that collides with the rear end of another car is charged with following too closely.
The driver of any vehicle is required to allow enough space between the vehicle he is driving and the vehicle in front, to safely stop without a collision.
Sometimes this is not as clear as one would think.
What are the road conditions? What was the weather like? How fast was the vehicle in front driving? Was the vehicle in front impeding the flow of traffic? Did the vehicle pulled in front of another vehicle without allowing enough room to be safe?
These are all complex questions which deserve to be explored by a experienced traffic defense attorney.
