Section 14-242 Distance from other vehicles.

    The driver of a vehicle shall not follow another vehicle or cycle more closely than is reasonably safe and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicle or cycle and the traffic upon and the condition of the roadway. Vehicles being driven upon any roadway outside of a business or residential district in a caravan or motorcade, whether or not towing other vehicles, shall be so operated, except in a funeral procession or in a duly authorized parade, so as to allow sufficient space between each such vehicle or combination of vehicles to enable any other vehicle or cycle to overtake or pass such vehicles in safety.
