Wife was glanced by a drunk driver, which caused a larger accident
She was hit on the back left side of her car (drunk had gotten into a turn lane, then decided she didn't want to turn, so tried pulling back into traffic) which caused my wife to careen out of control and into oncoming traffic. Thankfully, the accident wasn't as bad as it could have been, but the car is totalled. The driver and passenger were both legally drunk, driver arrested and taken away. The car is in the tow yard now, and both it and driver are from out of state. Not sure what insurance will cover, but another car hit my wife's when she crossed into oncoming traffic, so we are without a car and may have to pay damages to that driver and for a fence that was damaged. My wife was cited for inattentive driving, but I got photos today of both her car and the drunk's car, as well as the

I don't know Georgia law or why she is being advised to change her license. It may be because the terms of a first...
