Thats the technical definition of tailgating. If you're so close to the other car that in a situation in which the car in front of you suddenly breaks, and you rear end the car in front of you, that would be tailgating. Really, what do you think tailgating is if its not exactly the situation you're in now?

while that maybe true, the cop is not going to come flying from across the highway to ticket you without you doing a significant amount over the speed limit. Therefore its stupid to slam on the breaks when they are on the other side, also it draws attention to you for interrupting the flow of traffic.

@215, obviously she wouldnt have been in an accident had OP not hit her, therefore your argument is ludicrous! OP, sorry for your car but YDI for following to closely or as the ticket states, tailgating. You have to leave a set number of car lengths between you. That number increases as the speed at which you travel increases to allow room for the panicky breaker in front of you to safely hit the breaks. Face it man you F'ed up.

Hate to say it, but unless she came to a complete stop and that's why you hit her, you were probably tailgating. And speeding. stop breaking the law :D

YDI. At least in MA, you are responsible if you're behind them (unless you can PROVE they backed into you). You're expected to be a good driver and put enough distance that even if an essential part of their car drops and they come to a sudden stop, you can stop in time. While the woman wasn't a good driver, you clearly weren't either as you HIT HER. Drive better.
