Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to answer your question.

It sounds like they concluded you rear ended the car in front of you BEFORE you were rear-ended yourself. You can certainly challenge the ticket based on your own testimony that you were PUSHED into the car in front of you. If the car in front of you will testify that they heard a crash sound before they felt an impact to the rear of your car, that would corroborate your story and be extremely helpful and dramatically increase your chances of defeating the ticket.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
