i only remember seeing a green light, but the police say 2 independent witnesses say my light was red. i was traveling north and the other driver was heading west. police told me the other driver has no drivers license.
What are you trying to fight, the citation you were given or the civil liability portion that the insurance companies must deal with?
If you were cited and want to fight the citation issued, you should not attempt to do so by yourself as you do not have the legal acumen or experience to do so successfully and will most probably suffer badly for it.
Contact an experienced defense attorney who specializes in traffic citation defense. He or she may not be able to get the charges completely dismissed but may at the very least mitigate any penalties against you and may be able to keep any points off your license. With two independent witnesses against you, however, it is unlikely you will prevail in traffic court if those witnesses and the other party testify that you ran the light.
You can use the “Find a lawyer” link at the top of the screen for the names of attorneys in your area.
If you are referring to the civil liability regarding the insurance companies, then your insurance company will do a liability investigation to determine how much, if at all, you were at fault. Your question seems to assume that if a person who drives without a driver's license is in an accident, then that person should be considered at fault for the accident. This is not how the law works. The lack of a driver's license has no bearing on who is at fault. The loss facts are the loss facts. Let your insurance company handle the liability investigation, as that is the very reason you pay insurance premiums.
