How do I talk with a prosecutor to show him a trial may not be worth his effort?

Question Details: I was involved in an auto accident where the other driver veered into my car and hit me on the side and rear. The police cited both of us for careless driving. How can I show the prosecutor at the plea hearing or a preliminary if he allows it the factual evidence demonstrating I did nothing to provoke him and was actually trying to get away from him when he hit me? A written statement by a independent witness corroborates my story. Is this enough for the prosecutor to realize it will be difficult for him to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt? Do prosecutors dismiss careless driving tickets when the evidence on their side is weak?
