Base Fines Increase in July

We all know all too well that getting a traffic ticket proverbially hurts.  And now the sting just got a bit more painful. Effective July 1, 2015, base fines for most traffic infractions will increase by $12. This monetary bump is the largest since 2007, and is said to be initiated so as to help cities and counties provide legal defense for indigent people accused of crimes, and for a new computer system for the state’s district courts. So driver beware, get a ticket and you quite possibly will be subsidizing our government even more than in past years.

If cited for a traffic offense in Washington State it is always a stellar idea to immediately contact a Seattle traffic defense attorney. The Seattle traffic defense attorneys that make up SQ Attorneys are highly qualified and reputable Seattle traffic defense lawyers that are dedicated to providing top notch, aggressive representation for those cited for traffic violations all across Western Washington and the Greater Puget Sound region. So, when cited for a traffic violation do the smart thing … call SQ Attorneys immediately.
