Nice reflections.

Now people can see themselves and your tailights at the same time.

Yes, there is a polarizing filter that can be used (at least on a 35mm camera, not sure if there is one for a digital camera yet). Once attached, you can turn the filter to get some reflection or no reflection. I have used one for years on outside photos. I love it. You can get it at any good camera shop.

Yes, if you want, I supposed that will work. I would hold the polarized lense right up to the camera lense and then you shouldn't have too much of a problem

You can cup a polarizer over your lens but be careful of scratching the filter on the lens barrel.
A polarizer works on one plane. If you remove reflections from the side of the car, they will remain on the windscreen, or vice versa, but well worth it.
No special "digital" polarizer is required.
Be warned they suck up light, 2 f.stops worth, and work best at 90' to the light source, in your case the sun. With the sun directly behind you, it won't work at all. But hey, that's the worst place for the sun to be anyway.
I'm a pro photographer and have one on at most times. They dramatically improve almost all outdoor photography by producing rich, saturated colors. Everyone should have one!
