    Default Red Light Ticket in South Tacoma

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Washington

    OK - infractions come in 3s. Today in the snow, slush and ice I coasted through a red light thinking it was better than sliding through. I was going slow but the light was clearly red.

    I'm pretty sure I'll get a ticket since it was a controlled intersection and I think I saw a flash blub..

    How do you fight these??

    I would think only on foundation grounds to keep any evidence out of the case

    You could try to defend based on the road conditions, but you're supposed to be driving at a speed that's safe for the road conditions - and that includes being able to stop when the roads are wet or slippery.

    This might have been a more viable defense if you had encountered something like black ice.
