A: Under GA law the person making the left turn should always yield to oncoming traffic. See if you can find a good traffic ticket attorney in your area to fight it in court. You can dispute this as officers are not always correct. Also make sure you file a claim with her insurance and tell your side of the story.

Hope this helps!
