Many drivers receiving traffic tickets are unaware that there is a strict 15 day deadline to deliver their filled out ticket copy to the listed court, with either the full penalty $ payment included or their request to contest their ticket. Failure to do so within the 15 day deadline will result in the court referring their ticket to a collection agency within 15 days. And notifying the Washington State Department of Licensing, who in turn will suspend the driver’s license until the ticket is paid. Many drivers find this out the hard way when stopped months later for a minor traffic violation. The police officer suddenly informs them that they cannot just drive away because their license is suspended for an unpaid ticket.
