You rear-ended another driver and they're at fault? I don't think so. You might check with a personal injury lawyer, my experience has been that the driver of the car in back is at fault for following closer than was safe, regardless of the driver in front's sobriety.
If you received it from the officer or from the government, it's legal, why wouldn't it be? You should prepare to appear in court as provided on the notice or hire a DUI defense lawyer. You should also be aware that you have 10 days from the date of arrest to request a DMV hearing to challenge...Read more »

Call Mandatory Actions 1.916.657.6525, they can tell you what you need to do to get reinstated. You probably will need DUI School, SR22 insurance and pay some fees. You might check with the court, if a proof of completion for the DUI program wasn't filed you might have a warrant.
