The issue is whether at the time of the alleged violation you owned the vehicle and were driving the vehicle.
If you owned the vehicle and were driving the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation, you are liable for the ticket despite having sold the vehicle afterwards.
If you had sold the vehicle or were not driving the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation, you can file the declaration of nonresponsibility to not be liable for the ticket.
When a person sells a vehicle in WA, the person is supposed to file documents with the state to indicate the sale.
If you sold the vehicle and did not file the paperwork with the state, you need to do that now to avoid getting more tickets.
Some persons buy low value vehicles without filing the paperwork so the persons will park the vehicles unlawfully all over the streets and the tickets would not be under their names.

If you sold the car you should have filed the seller's report of sale with the state DMV and you would not be in this situation. Now you need to let the court know you were not driving with an affidavit or sworn testimony.
