Fighting Your Washington Failure to Yield to Emergency Vehicles Ticket
A Washington State failure to yield to emergency vehicles ticket is an expensive affair. The infraction is one of the most costly in the entire state, and people sometimes are cited with this infraction under questionable circumstances. The frequency with which this WA traffic ticket is issued has increased dramatically over the last couple of years. One can only speculate as to why, but a fine of over $1,000 for the infraction certainly doesn’t hurt the government’s financial problems.
This statute requires motorists to move to the right as close as possible to the curb and stop when there is an emergency vehicle



approaching with its lights and siren on trying to pass – i.e. a police vehicle, a fire truck, or an ambulance. Actually, police cars do not even need their lights on, only their siren is required under the statute.
The problem that has been occurring more frequently is when Officers issue this ticket under other circumstances. Many Officers on freeways observe on the left shoulder and then pull motorists onto the left side. Sometimes people will start pulling over to the right shoulder and the officer will specifically signal for the motorist to use the left. Unfortunately, some Officers are now sitting in the left shoulder and then pull people over, but if the people pull off to the left side without being instructed to, the officer will also issue the failure to yield ticket along with the original infraction.
The additional $1,000 fine, along with the points against one’s license, doesn’t sit well with most motorists. Whether you receive this ticket under the intended circumstances, or fall victim to this new tactic, it is extremely important that you contact a Washington State traffic lawyer attorney to fight it on your behalf.

There is no good reason to acquiesce to the State’s case when you were trying to do the right thing. When you consider the costs of the original WA traffic ticket, combined with the prospect of higher insurance premiums, it makes sense to fight for what you know is right.
