My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Washington
This might seem obvious to a bunch of people on here, but it's turned out to be critical to me.
How does a court count days in "respond within fifteen (15) days from the date issued..." Does 15 days include the day of the issue, or start on the next day? (I'm already assuming weekends are counted.)
If you miss this timeline and there are mitigating circumstances, is there a format for addressing the court about that?
