GA traffic question. As I was making a left turn, I got into

This answer was rated:

GA traffic question. As I was making a left turn, I got into an accident where another car hit the side of my car. They cited me as the at fault driver and told me I failed to yield when turning left. However, I know I had the green arrow, not just the green light. Is there any way I can prove this?
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

If you had a green arrow and not just a green light, then you had the right of way, as you suspect. The problem in these cases is that you need a witness to show you had the green arrow if the other party is claiming they had a green light as well. In the event where it is your word against their word, the court would have to dismiss the citation because they would not be able to establish fault and determine whether or not you had the arrow or the other party had the green light absent an independent witness to testify to what the light was.
