Under RCW 46.61.190, failure to stop at stop sign is illegal and can cost you $136 or even more if an accident results. Under RCW 46.61.055, not coming to a complete stop at a stop light (making a "free right turn") can have the same consequences.
If you've been given a ticket for failing to stop, what's the best thing to do?
It's simple: get help. Talk with a lawyer BEFORE you decide to just pay the ticket. At Leist Law Office, PS, in Seattle, we can take effective action to protect your rights and limit the consequences of a violation.
Our founding attorney Scott Leist is a former Seattle police officer and long-time prosecutor, as well as an experienced defense lawyer. He knows how to handle your red light traffic ticket or stop sign ticket because he has been on the other side issuing citations and prosecuting defendants.
