What Happens After You’ve Been Issued a Washington Traffic Ticket?
If you’ve been issued a Washington traffic ticket, speeding ticket, or any other variety of Washington ticket, your first thought may be whether it constitutes a crime. You may worry over your insurance rates increasing and whether the violation will stay in your record.
You may wonder whether there is a way to fight your traffic ticket and whether you may succeed if you tried. The quick answer is yes, on both counts. However, Washington traffic ticket law is a complex area.
There are, basically, two types of violations that you can be cited for: a traffic infraction or a traffic crime. Traffic infractions include speeding, failure to signal, or running a red light. Traffic infractions are a civil offense; they do not require jail time. However, your penalty will come in the form of a fine.
Meanwhile, traffic crimes such as hit and run, negligent driving, reckless driving, and driving under the influence, are considered types of misdemeanor criminal offense. They often incur penalties, mandatory fines, and even jail time.
You Need an Aggressive and Knowledgeable Attorney by Your Side
If you’ve been issued a traffic ticket, a viable option would be to get the ticket dismissed. However, that option is not possible in some instances, so your next best option is to keep your violation off of your permanent record. In turn, this could also help keep your insurance rates low.
