    no license

    My daughter (17) was driving my car without a license. She was hit by another car while stopped at a stop sign, but the driver told police that my daughter was stopped beyond the white line at the stop sign. Because of this, my daughter was cited for both: driving without a drivers license and failure to yeild at a stop sign (with her speed listed at 0 mph). We have witnesses (the car behind ours) who say that it was the other car's fault; the other car swerved into ours while my daughter was stopped behind the line. I was also cited because I knew my daughter didn't have a license and knew she had access to the car. (I also knew that she had two licensed drivers with her.) We are scheduled for civil traffic court. I'm not sure how my daughter and I should plea or if we need legal services. In addition, I'm finding conflicting information as to what the possible penalties will be if found guilty. I also don't know what information to share with our insurance - the other party has filed a claim on us.

    You should obtain a lawyer. Your insurance will likely not cover any damage, since she had no license.
