Re: Seatbelt Violation in Washington State
Was last June the date of your speeding ticket, or was that the date of the hearing? A deferral (and the judge SHOULD have told you how long your deferral period was) runs from the HEARING date -- not the infraction date.
Will it go against your deferral? If it's still within the deferral period, YES!
You might be able to contact the clerk of the court (the one that issued the speeding ticket) and ask them to look at your record. They should be able to see the same record the judge looks at and can tell if you've had a deferral ANYTIME within the past seven years -- and if any are still active.
Oh, your comment that 'I wasn't "endangering" anyone but myself.' DON'T EVER SAY THAT IN COURT!!!!!
p.s. "Pretense" that you were taking your jacket off? You're just pretending that's what happened?
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
