Title 13 . Public Safety
Chapter 2 . General Provisions
Section 90. Following too closely

13 AAC 02.090. Following too closely

(a) A driver of a motor vehicle may not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent and at least two seconds behind the vehicle being followed, having regard for the traffic upon the roadway and the condition of the roadway.

(b) A driver of a motor vehicle towing another vehicle, when traveling upon a roadway outside a business or residence district, and which is following another motor vehicle which is also towing another vehicle shall, when conditions permit, leave sufficient space between his vehicle and the vehicle being towed in front of him so that an overtaking vehicle may enter and occupy the space without danger. This does not prevent a motor vehicle towing another vehicle from overtaking and passing a like vehicle or other vehicle.

(c) A motor vehicle being driven upon a roadway outside a business or residence district in a caravan or motorcade, whether or not towing another, must be operated so as to allow sufficient space between each vehicle or combination of vehicles to enable another vehicle to enter and occupy the space without danger. This provision does not apply to a funeral procession.
