Im really interested to see how the accident, the insurance side of things, turns out. In 99% of rear ender accidents the Police will hold the second driver at fault, usually issuing a summons for careless…due the fact the driver had failed to maintain a safe distance behind the 1st vehicle.
That being said, if I was the second driver I would get an attorney and immediately claim proper distance could not be accurately judged due to reduced visibility of the brake lights. And if the Officer on scene had not done so already, I would take it upon myself to sign complaints in reference to failure to maintain equipment, unsafe window glazing (can be applied to tail lights) and modification to equipment after inspection.
At least that would be the case if the accident occurred in NJ.
