Hello:

a driver of a motor vehicle has a duty both to obey the rules of the road, to exercise the ordinary degree of caution that a reasonable driver would exercise in the same situation, and to maintain control of their vehicle at all times. Failure to obey these rules can result in citation except where the driver unforeseeably is unable to exercise safe control over the vehicle or the circumstances are so extenuating that justice demands otherwise (for example, rushing an injured person to the hospital.)

If a defense is to be raised, it is done at trial after a plea is entered. To enter a plea, the defendant just tells the court "not guilty" when asked how they plead.

I hope that this helps.
