There's a possibility that you will be offered a plea deal in exchange for your guilt. Your defense of "the driver hit the brakes in front of me when he should have just went" is not going to win anyone over. You have to have enough space in front of you and the other vehicle so that if he comes to a stop for whatever reason (a raccoon jumps out, a kid chasing a ball, a dangerous pothole, a chunk of tire laying on the road), you are prepared to stop in time.
Since the difference between any reduced charge and careless driving is so huge, you should probably consider any offer made available to you.
