     § 3310.  Following too closely.
        (a)  General rule.--The driver of a motor vehicle shall not
     follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and
     prudent, having due regard for the speed of the vehicles and the
     traffic upon and the condition of the highway.
        (b)  Combinations of vehicles and trucks.--The driver of any
     motor vehicle drawing another vehicle or of any truck when
     traveling upon a roadway outside of an urban district and
     following a motor vehicle drawing another vehicle or following a
     truck shall, whenever conditions permit, leave sufficient space
     so that an overtaking vehicle may enter and occupy the space
     without danger, except that this subsection does not prevent a
     motor vehicle drawing another vehicle or prevent a truck from
     overtaking and passing any vehicle or combination of vehicles.
        (c)  Caravans and motorcades.--Upon any roadway outside of an
     urban district, motor vehicles being driven in a caravan or
     motorcade, whether or not towing other vehicles, shall be so
     operated as to allow sufficient space between each vehicle or
     combination of vehicles so as to enable any other vehicle to
     enter and occupy space without danger. This subsection does not
     apply to funeral processions, which shall not be interrupted by
     any vehicle other than an emergency vehicle.
