You're a kid. Therefore, it's your fault.

It's not yourself you have to look out for on the roads, it's everybody else.

if you can prove you weren't following too close take it to court.

Well cops are stupid, but wether they pull out in front of you, or something happens causing you rearend someone etc. it is automatically your fault no matter where you drive or how old you are. That's pretty much the standard. He's lucky it wasn't a wreckless driving ticket, cause that would be a guarunteed court visit and fined out the ass too. Plus that could lead to losing your liscense too. Following too close aint bad compaired to wreckless driving. I bet they were senior citizens that pulled out in front of him too. Old people are really bad about doing that.

just be careful that the driver of the other car doesn't try to pull a scam and claim you gave them whiplash.
I've heard of cases where someone driving a car will deliberately pull in front of someone, then slam on the brakes. Not only is it Your fault (any rear ending is always the fault of the driver doing the rear ending) you could end up facing someone who has no insurance and suddenly theres a letter in your mail box saying your being sued.

Let's all gather 'round for a group Fuck You!!!
I've got 3 neighbors that are Hillsboro police officers and a retired detective around the corner.
I call dispatch and 3 squad cars pull up along with a black Tahoe.
Come on over and say some shit at my house, Prick!

Its the right of a US citizen to say what they beleive in and i beleive that some cops are retarded. I know cops. Ive met many cops and been there for burials of police officers. Im not saying i dont respect what they do. Im saying that they can be stupid and unreasonable.

I would need to see some academic research to back up your claim to the contrary.

Dude, chill.. my father and mother are both police officers.. one federal, one city. Everyone has their moments and cops arent always there to witness a crime or accident. Their just doing their job and trying to use their best judgement. No one is perfect, and shit happens
