    Default Washington State Traffic Citation

    My question involves traffic court in the State of Washington, Pierce County.

    I received a ticket last weekend traveling EB on SR-16 for 65 in 55 zone. I noticed that the ticket has two discrepancies:

    1. The block is checked YES for CDL. I assume this means Commercial Drivers License. I do not have a CDL.

    2. The sex block is marked F. I am male.

    Are these things relevant to my ticket? Are these errors enough to get the ticket dismissed?

    If not, I'll request a deferment using mitigation process. Thanks in advance.

    Minor discrepancies won't matter. You still might want to contest the ticket and submit a discovery request. If the officer's sworn statement looks good, you can always change to a "mitigation" hearing later.

    p.s. You can't get a deferral with a CDL, so you'll have to clear that up with the court anyway.
