My question involves a reckless driving ticket from the State of: Washington.
I am a Canadian citizen and about 2-3 months ago I was down in Washington and received a reckless driving violation. I was in a rush and I was speeding a little bit while switching across 2 lanes. The officer pulled me over and informed me that I would be receiving a summon to the court in regards with reckless driving.
I finally received the notice and I'm scheduled to appear on Aug 11, which is next week. I have a few questions and hopefully someone here can help me out.
1. If I admit that I am guilty, what are the possible consequences ?
2. Should I look for a lawyer? If so, locally in Canada or in Washington?
3. What steps should I take now?
4. Any lawyer recommendations?
Thanks in advice for any helpful information/feedback.
