Standard of Proof for Washington State Traffic Tickets
Many drivers think that the prosecution must prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that they committed the traffic infraction. That is not the case. “Beyond a reasonable doubt” standard applies only in criminal cases. Most traffic infractions, such as speeding tickets for example, are civil violations.
For civil traffic infractions, the prosecution only has to prove that it is “more likely than not” that you committed the traffic infraction. So if the officer said he saw you run a stop sign, that is sufficient for the court.
The best way to beat your traffic ticket is to hire a competent Everett ticket attorney.

Why Retain an Everett Traffic Ticket Attorney?
The actual cost of a traffic ticket is a lot more than what is on the face of the ticket. In reality, a $124 speeding ticket will actually cost you nearly $1,000. According to a reason study, even one moving violation on your driving record can increase your insurance premium by up to 22%. The entire article can be found here.
That means if you were paying $100 per month for your insurance before the ticket, you will be paying $122 per month after the ticket goes on your record. That will cost you $792 more for your insurance by the time the ticket is off your driving record after three years.
So the total cost for your $124 speeding ticket is actually roughly about $1,000
Now you can see why it is cheaper to retain an Everett traffic ticket attorney.
