Knowledge of Complex Traffic Laws
Our highly qualified Bellevue criminal defense attorneys stay on top of changes to traffic laws. For instance, in 2000, Washington State implemented a program called Target Zero, which endeavors to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries on the state's roadways by 2030. While this is a noble goal, Washington drivers face stricter enforcement of traffic laws.
The state has identified six key factors in fatality and injury collisions that law enforcement officers will be watching for. These are:
- Impairment, or driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs
- Speeding, whether over the posted limit or too fast for the conditions
- Distraction, especially texting or other cell phone use
- Unrestrained vehicle occupants, or not adhering to seatbelt laws
- Unlicensed driver, especially those with suspended licenses
- Drowsy driver, which can lead to negligent or reckless driving
Because of this increased enforcement, it's vital to have a well-informed driving offense attorney if you are charged with an infraction or crime. Our skilled defense attorneys at Stein, Lotzkar & Starr, P.S. appear daily in courts throughout King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties, and understand the complex traffic laws. Let us be your advocate.
