Understanding Your Washington Ticket – Speeding in a Construction Zone

Receiving a Washington State speeding ticket is an expensive affair. However, if you are cited for speeding in a construction zone, the fines automatically double. If found guilty of the infraction, not only will you have to pay for the ticket, but it is likely your insurance rates will increase dramatically. If you’ve recently been cited with a Washington traffic ticket for speeding in a construction zone, it is in your best interests to talk to a qualified WA speeding ticket attorney, if you plan on fighting the infraction.
In the state of Washington a construction zone is anywhere on or next to a public roadway


where maintenance, construction, or repairs to the road are being done. Speed limits in these zones are usually lower than the typical rate of speed so as to protect the safety of the people working alongside the road. Laws that prohibit speeding within these zones are taken very seriously, and even if you are only travelling a couple of miles per hour over the posted limit it is possible you could receive a Washington State speeding ticket.
Sometimes a construction zone can also include an area where there is currently no actual work being done, but speeds have been reduced because it might be dangerous to travel at the normal rate of speed. This sometimes leads to confusion with drivers who, when they don’t see a construction crew, assume it is okay to travel at the regular speed limit. However, if you plan on pleading “not guilty” to the infraction, it makes sense to retain an experienced Washington State traffic lawyer.
Fines assessed for a Washington speeding ticket issued in a construction zone cannot be suspended, waived, or reduced. This underscores the importance of talking to a WA traffic attorney today, and making sure that you have someone working with you who will fight to have your ticket dismissed.
