I received a citation for failure to yield while turning left, the other driver received a citation for running a red light. The officer doesn't get paid enough to figure out who was at fault so he left it to the court to decide. No witnesses stopped so it is his word against mine. I have a perfect driving record for my entire life (10+ yrs) and live out of state. Insurance company has already issued a "no-fault" judgement so my insurance will not increase UNLESS points are assigned to my record. Would it be best to simply hire a lawyer and get this taken care of? How much are court costs and a fine for something like this? No injuries on either side.
