Following too closely, otherwise known as “tailgating”, is when one driver follows behind another vehicle more closely than is reasonable. This means that all drivers in CA must maintain a safe distance between the vehicle in front of them while taking into mindful consideration of how fast traffic is moving, road conditions, visibility, etc.
By definition, “reasonable” is a matter of opinion while using good judgment. Being that there is no black-and-white line that draws the line between tailgating, and normal driving during busy hours, there are many defenses can be used to demonstrate how you were not following too closely. This dismisses your tailgating ticket entirely!
