Approximately 60% of auto and truck accidents in Louisiana are caused by drivers "Following too Close" to the vehicle in front of them.

LA. R.S. 32:81 states the a driver "shall not follow another vehicle more closely tham is reasonable and prudent."  The Two Second Rule is recommended as reasonable and prudent by the Louisiana's driver's license guide book, as well as, other major highway safety organizations.

The two second rule is for optimal conditions, the distance should be increased to 3 or 4 seconds during times of inclement weather.  State troopers use stop watches and time your distance from vehicle in front of you using a fixed land point.  If less than two seconds in optimal conditions they can write you a ticket you for "Following too Close".

There are many ways to contest a "Following too Close" ticket in Louisiana since using a stop watch is far from an exact science.

A "Following too Close" violation will likely result in fines, points on your driving record and increased insurance costs. Your license could be suspended as a result of this citation for a driver who already has points on his or her driving record!
