Understanding Your Washington State Improper Signaling Traffic Ticket
Washington State traffic laws are governed by various statutes. Each statute outlines the requirements that must be met by every licensed driver. Failure to do so could result in being issued a Washington traffic ticket. The statutes governing improper signaling are very similar to unsafe lane change statutes.
Statutes for Washington improper signaling state that when making a lane change or a turn, the movement must be safe and you must use a valid turn signal. This means that if you make a lane change and signal but it is not safe, then you could be ticketed under statutes RCW 46.61.305 or 46.61.140. On the other



hand, if you make a safe lane change but do not signal, then you could only be cited under 46.61.305.
Another subsection in this statute requires drivers to signal their intent to change lanes or turn for at least 100ft. This means starting to signal just as you are switching lanes does not comply with the statute. The one-blink signal when you are already straddling two lanes is insufficient and could result in a WA improper signaling traffic ticket.
Because the Improper signaling statute is so similar to the unsafe lane change statute it is always important to look carefully at what RCW statute number you were actually cited under, rather than only relying on the title of the statute written on the ticket. Sometimes Officers will switch the titles.
These facts underscore the fact that Washington State improper signaling traffic tickets are defensible in almost every case. The regulations governing how tickets are written and filed are stringent, and any mistakes made during this process could lead to an outright dismissal of your Washington ticket.
Obviously, it is important to have a Washington traffic ticket attorney looking after your interests, and protecting your legal rights. While people often decide to defend themselves against a ticket, only a legally oriented defense stands a chance of success with the Courts.
