Hi, I recently had a car accident that resulted in receiving a Traffic Infringement Notice for "Follow vehicle too close". Outline of the incident: I was driving on the Gateway Motorway, travelling approximately 60km/h, was about to crest a small bridge/hill where I know the traffic slows down/stops, so I had taken my foot off the accelerator and had my foot ready to use the brakes. Then, I sneezed - when I recovered from the sneeze the large stopping distance that I had allowed for was reduced to 10 metres and I was still doing 60km/h. Thus, I plowed my car into the now stationary car in front of me. There were no immediate injuries at first. Then the Ambulance showed up, the driver of the car I had hit was not feeling well and was taken by the Ambulance. Next, the police showed up, where I was informed that I would "probably be charged" for following too close and I would be interviewed further by the young Officer. I waited weeks, no interview came up. I landed a phone call from the Police Officer telling me that he was going to charge me for this offence. I asked how he can do that with no evidence and no witness of me supposedly following too closely. He informed me that "from the information available to me, I am of the opinion that the issuing of infringement notice is appropriate in this circumstance". With no witnesses, and I doubt severely that the poor bugger I hit could see anything other than my car hitting his, how can I be charged? I am a careful driver that never follows closely, which hurts a lot. I want to fight this offence, is it worth trying? Kindest Regards.
