Georgia Now Enforcing Close Following Laws
The Georgia DOT is now enforcing close following laws within fleets, as well as in general, under the commercial vehicle aggressive driver laws. We had a friend contact us today that had 3 different drivers receive tickets for following too closely in 3 different groups across the state-including I-20 in the Bremen area. We have always recommended that you follow 8-10 seconds behind one another. They are using a laser guided radar system to measure following distances. BE SURE TO MAINTAIN SAFE SPACING BETWEEN YOURSELF AND OTHER VEHICLES, ESPECIALLY WHEN TRAVELING IN MULTI BUS MOVES! These tickets are 3 points on your license. Thank you for all you do. Please stay safe and make sure you allow yourself plenty of room at all times!
