Standard of Proof for Washington State Traffic Tickets
Many drivers mistakenly believe that the government’s burden in civil traffic infractions is “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard. However, “beyond reasonable doubt” applies only in criminal cases. Your speeding ticket or a failure to yield ticket is actually a civil matter.
The standard of proof is in civil matters is “preponderance of the evidence.” This standard is much lower than “beyond reasonable doubt” used in criminal cases. All the prosecution has to show is that it is “more likely than not” that you committed the traffic violation. Many drivers who attempt to handle their traffic infraction matters without a Bothell ticket lawyer quickly find that it does not take much for the prosecution to meet its burden.

Why Retain a Bothell Speeding Ticket Lawyer?
The price of a ticket violation is a lot more than the dollar amount on the face of the ticket. The real expense of a traffic infraction comes when your insurance rates increase. According to Forbes.com, a single ticket can increase your insurance premiums by up 22%.
A moving violation remains on your driving record for three years. By the time the traffic violation is off your record after three years, you would have paid more than $1,000 in premiums for one traffic violation. That is already much more than our attorney fee.
In addition, a moving violation could have a negative effect on your driver’s license. Washington State DOL does not use a point system. However, if you receive 6 or more moving violations within 12-month period, the DOL will suspend your license for 60 days. The DOL will place you on 12-month probation if you receive 4 moving violations within 12-month period or 5 moving violations within 24-month period.
