Q: Is there a time limit from when a traffic infraction (parking ticket in this case) occurs to when the court or officer has to give you notice of the violation?
I received a parking violation notice at an inner city state park back on Jan 11/06. This was not an official violation notice as perscribed under the local rules but a WA state park cutomized notification envelop asking me to pay the parking fee.
Yesterday (Feb 17th, 06) I received an official violation notice mailed from the court asking me to respond within 15 days regarding the violation. That is over thirty days ago that the infraction occurred.
PS. The violation was filed with the correct court on Jan 18th, within the 5 days required for filing.
