Best Answer

The person who crossed the line (whether stopped or not) is at fault. The other vehicle may not have had a chance to switch lanes in time and cannot be expected to pay for damages when they were just driving in their own lane. Either way, the police determine the fault since they are there to investigate and we, here at faqfarm, are not.

Usually, on non-commercial or low occupancy vehicles (passenger cars), there is no posted minimum stopping distance. You can bring your car as close to the stopped vehicle as safely possible, and not be in violation of anything.

When approaching a vehicle that has a similar warning label, try to stop that distance behind the vehicle.
