My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Washington
Today, I got a ticket for driving with expired license for $550 under the state stature RCW 46.20.015 which states the following: "A person who violates this section is subject to a penalty of two hundred fifty dollars. If the person appears in person before the court or submits by mail written proof that he or she obtained a valid license after being cited, the court shall reduce the penalty to fifty dollars."
Is there a way to contest the ticket by getting discovery or it's impossible to get it dropped completely? Also, once my license is renewed then I assume I have to schedule a mediation hearing to show it to a judge. I would appreciate any comments on how to contest the ticket.
