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.

When coming to a stop behind another vehicle stop at least how many feet behind the vehicle in front of you?

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. On some industrial vehicles and most high occupancy vehicles (buses) there is a waning sign on the rear bumper that says, "Stay Back X# Feet." When approaching a vehicle that has a similar warning label, try to stop that distance behind the vehicle.
