last I checked, there is no law stating specifically how far behind a car you must be at a stoplight.

However, failure to control your vehicle, which moves into another vehicle that is stopped.....that's called failure to use due care. It's a citation commonly given in FL

always use e-brake and don't burn your clutch as you let go.

This is to funny. Reninds me of the Dumb A$$ who accidently puts the car in reverse at a stop light and guns it when the light turns green.

It's all a matter of what the insurance company thinks.

The person behind you always has a responsibility to keep back far enough. If they are too close behind you and they get hit by you rolling back a couple of inches, it's probably their fault.

it's obvious you're neither:
1) a cop
2) an insurance adjuster.

I'm the latter. There is never a black and white situation.

Oh so I guess you think you must know everything

I think I know more even though I've never been in that situation and know nothing about insurance or even the laws that govern this type of accident.

But I am 20 so I OBVIOUSLY know everything. Plus I'm an internet tough guy

This is actually a big deal in San Francisco; there are some very steep streets there. If you're stopped at an intersection driving a stick, you have to be pretty quick with your feet, and even then you're still going to roll back a bit. Hell, automatics often roll back a bit. In that kind of situation, it's often going to be the fault of the person behind you for not giving you enough room. In other places, you just need to control your vehicle better.

The law is that you're supposed to be able to see the tires of the car in front of you when you stop. So if somebody crawls up your ***, and you roll back on a hill it CAN be the person behind you.

Dumb question, but not entirely.

Ignore the guys being dicks here. In many states, if you're driving a manual and roll back into the guy behind you, then yes, it is their fault. Check California's DOT site or make a phone call or two to an insurance company (doesn't have to be yours).

I know that if you roll back into someone in North Carolina or Georgia, it's the rear car's fault.

Interesting question actually. On a first quick thought, I'd imagine it being your fault (car in front), but after reading people's responses I'm not so sure anymore.

Is there some sort of stipulation here about how far the car behind you is? Because if you rolled back into a car that was 100 yards behind you, I'm sure it's your fault.

Depends on the distance between the two vehicles. There may be comp/neg.
If he's right on your a$$ and you role back a few inches, you may be able to place some comp/neg on him. If you role back a couple feet or more, it's all on you buddy.
