Following Too Closely
When a driver follows too closely behind another driver, this may greatly increase the likelihood of a collision. Often called tailgating, following too closely places the driver at fault and all other drivers and passengers on the road at risk of involvement in a car accident. Maintaining a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you is important, particularly if the vehicle in front stops suddenly or slows down due to a change in traffic. If you are too close to the vehicle in front, you will have insufficient time to stop and will rear-end the vehicle. When you consider that rear-end accidents are one of the most common types of car accidents, it is easy to see why following too closely is such an issue.

We represent drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists throughout the Atlanta area who have been injured in collisions caused by irresponsible and reckless drivers.
