As it is a not a criminal infraction, just a traffic citation with a financial penalty, not a criminal one, you are not entitled to a public defender even if you a qualified for one financially.

As it sounds like you had the "last chance to avoid the accident" and hit one car shoving it into another, it is not likely going to matter what you claim is your reason; your insurance will pay to get the person you hit AND the person in front of the person that you hit as you were the culprit of the accident and you will lose in Court.

Cheaper to pay the fine and get it over with, despite you insurance premiums going up; in the future, remember to keep proper distances no matter who "horns" in on you.
