Defending clients Following too close
Today, Tuesday, January 30, 2018, I had three different potential clients call me, all charged with following too close accidents.
A following too close accident is a very common occurrence in metropolitan Atlanta. The metro areas roads are filled to capacity. In an effort to add even more cars on a street, the distance between cars has reduced to unsafe.
The Georgia law states that a driver must maintain sufficient distance between his car and the car in front to stop safely without a collision. This is true even in a chain reaction collision where multiple vehicles are involved.
You should follow the car in front of you slowly and allow enough space to stop safely. Frequently, when you provide enough space, another car will pull into that safe space that you provided. You are now required to slow and provide another safe space.
This information is provided to you by the Alpharetta, Georgia traffic ticket defense attorney Scott Miller.
If you have been charged with a following too close accident, you may call attorney Scott Miller at 770-408-1001 for a free consultation.
