My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: Washington
I received a ticket for having expired tabs while parked in a parking garage. It was tucked under my winshield wiper when I got off the ferry. I had already renewed my vehicle registration online and had selected the option to have the tabs waiting for me at the local DOL contractor's office, so I wouldn't have to risk not getting them in the mail in time. I blew it and forgot to pick them up (they had been sitting there two weeks at the time- yikes!). The kids helped clean out the car that weekend, and I haven't seen the ticket since. I don't think it was a lot of money, and I had planned to just pay it to avoid having to take a day off work to explain why the new stickers weren't on the vehicle. Now, I don't even know if it's too late for that! The ticket was issued on April 11. Can you tell me if I can still pay it? Would that be the best option for my record (which is clean), or would there be value to going to court and contesting?
