I am a resident of Georgia, and I have a court date for a

Hello. I am a resident of Georgia, and I have a court date for a traffic ticket in mid-January that I received after an accident. The ticket I received from the officers on site of the accident stated "failure to yield - left turn." However, when I checked the citation online, the offense is listed as "6X - FAILED TO YIELD RIGHT OF WAY TURNING/ACCIDNETTURNING/ACCIDENT." No one was injured in the accident, but both vehicles were deemed as totaled by insurance. There was not a DUI or any other aggravating charge for this accident. My question is this: should I plead NOLO for this offense? I have never used this before. Also, if I do plead NOLO, my understanding is that I will still be responsible for paying the fine, but points will not go onto my drivers license. I would like to make sure this is correct, and that I am able to plead NOLO in this case. I would also like to understand whether or not it matters if the points go onto my license as far as my car insurance premium is concerned...my insurance company obviously knows that I was involved in a wreck, and knows how much it cost them to handle. Therefore, won't my insurance automatically go up accordingly?

I was at an intersection making a left turn into a one way

Hi I was at an intersection making a left turn into a one way when a school bus from the opposite direction was starting to slow down and was beginning to pull out the stop sign. Because of my position in the intersection (and to avoid being hit) I decided to proceed before the driver loaded or unloaded the children on that corner of the street. Would I receive a ticket?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: No ma'am. I was not pulled over nor were there any police present bit I'm concerned about the bus driver taking down my information. I have been driving for three years and have never received a traffic violation or ticket (thank god).JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No that's it.
