How Much Does a Following Closely Ticket Cost?

Following Too Closely, also known as tailgating, is one of the most common causes of traffic accidents.  In New York, particularly, it violates section 1129(a) of the Vehicle and Traffic Law which states that a “vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the highway.”  According to the law, a driver following another vehicle has a duty to keep a safe distance.  As a general rule, this reasonable distance is measured at two car lengths.  Although no one is pleased when he is pulled over and given a ticket, it is the job of police officers to try to keep our streets as safe as possible.  If giving you a ticket will help you to remember the laws, the roads will be safer for everyone.  Unfortunately, all traffic tickets will result in some type of fee that is to be paid to the state, and following too closely ticket is no exception.
