As a driver you are supposed to be travelling at such a distance as to be able to avoid striking the vehicle in front of you, no matter what the circumstance. If the vehicle in front of you strikes a vehicle in front of it and comes to an immediate stop you should be travelling far enough behind to avoid this circumstance.

We are a tourist town and we are a summer town, but that does not give you the right to walk around the streets drinking alcoholic beverages. If you do and if you get caught it is a $125. ticket, you could buy 3.3 cases of a popular light beer and sit in your back yard for the same price, and we would not end up with a broken beer bottle on our streets.
