    Default Speeding Ticket Deferrals in Pierce County, Washington

    My question involves traffic court in the State of: Washington (Pierce County)

    I got a speeding ticket (78 in a 60 zone) around 1am on the 17th. So my 15 day limit to respond is this Friday.

    I'm only 20 years old and have never had a ticket and I was hoping to get this deferred. However, when I called the court number on my ticket, the woman said that I should check the mitigation hearing box and then appear and ask for a deferral, however after reading on here that seems like a load of bs, as you're admitting your guilty.

    This court has a hearing by mail, where you can contest it by mail and give a statement, should I ask for a deferral this way. I live about 40 miles away from Tacoma, so it really would be an inconvenience to have to show up to a court room.


    Any ideas?

    And for the hearing by mail option, do I still have to send back my ticket?

    The clerk I talked to on the phone was rather rude and acted like she didn't even want to be there... meh

    Read through this rather lengthy thread. It will answer most of your questions -- post #5 concerns DWS.
