Know When You Are Required to Maintain 300 Foot Following Distance to Avoid Getting Ticketedblog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

California Vehicle Code section 21704 requires a driver of any motor vehicle subject to the speed restriction of Section 22406 that is operated outside of a business or residence district, to keep the vehicle he is driving at a distance of not less than 300 feet to the rear of any other motor vehicle.

Most would think this law only applies to commercial drivers in semi-trucks, however even

an ordinary, everyday driver with a Class C license is required to adhere to the 300 feet rule when driving a passenger vehicle and towing.

A violation of California Vehicle Code section 21704 can add one point to a driver’s motor vehicle record and one and a half points if the driver holds a commercial license. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
