[QUOTE=snrusnak;616840] My dad got a ticket for rear ending the car in front of him even though he was sitting still when it happened. The officer said "you didn't provide enough room".

In the drivers ed book, as well as defensive driving courses ( mandatory work related courses we had to take ) it clearly states that the rear tires of the car should sit on your hood ( visually ) and that will give you the proper distance to be from the car in front of you at any and all stops... usually 3-5 feet.

yeah I don't know how close he was, but I know after that wreck (he has back injury now) he stays very far back from cars when stopped...

Not sure if I agree with that idea. If they're behind you the worst they are likely to do is rear end you but their inattention might not involve you at all. If they screw up in front to you, it might not be possible to get out of the way.

That doesn't really make sense to me....If they are behind you, you can't stop them from rear ending you (you can't control them)....if they are in front of you there's nothing to worry about...

That depends on how fast and how close you are tailgating them....lol
