Hi, my wife was driving my car and she took right turn in red and I got the ticket as my car is registered to my name. I was riding as passenger at that time. What shall I do now?

Washington State

Lawyer's Assistant: Do you need to appear in court?

No, they have instruction to pay fine online or in person at court

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think that's it

Your Question:

Hi, my wife was driving my car and she took right turn in red and I got the ticket as my car is registered to my name. I was riding as passenger at that time. What shall I do now?

Response: You should dispute the ticket because you were not the one driving the car. However, you may be asked to state who was driving the car, but you are under no legal obligation to release that information.

Goodluck with the hearing,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Thanks for your response.
Along with ticket, I got a form which requires that I had to explain that I am not the driver and there is section for Driver's Name and Address. Do I need to fill that form while responding? What shall I do?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
