A few things to consider - which really, the police analyst should do:
1) POPP - Point of Possible Perception: at what point could the driver have perceived that something was occurring
2) PRT - Perception/Reaction Time: Accepted value for Humans is 1.5seconds ( 0.75s to see it followed by 0.75s to react to it)
3) Skid marks: Were there any? ABS leaves shadow marks that are faint and disappear fast (depending on temperature).
So, were measurements taken by the Police Dept? Was a Police Analyst there? How much damage was sustained? Who said you were following too closely?
As was asked previously: What is your tire tread like? Was it raining? Were the roads wet?
