i was driving in left lane, behind a slower car with another car to my right. cop pulled up closer to me than i was to the car in front of me i had no place to go, felt uncomfortable and got closer to car infront of me. i was ticketed for following too closely. when asked what the legal distance was, cop responded twice with claims of reaction time, never with a distance or any aspect of the written law. the law is written very vague and since i didn't get into an accident, doesn't that show it was in fact within a "reasonable and prudent" distance? also how late is too late to ask for a continuance or request for discovery?
