What you are talking about is called a "Subsequent Remedial Measure." In an accident, if the defendant were not allowed to cure a problem without the cure itself being an admission of fault, then parties would never cure the problem. These are called subsequent remedial measures in most states and are not admissible as evidence with several exceptions (denial of ownership, denial of the condition being defective, and etc). Call a local lawyer for help and the law of your state.

Probably not. You were driving the vehicle, not the state. You have a responsibility to assess the intersection, no matter what. You have the responsibility to look out for oncoming traffic and potential danger.Report this incident to your insurance carrier and let them handle the matter for you.
