I got a speeding ticket in this last summer, and then in mid October i got another ticket because my tabs were expired and the car wasn't in my name. I took care of the title to my car and then got insurance and went to traffic court in November. Neither the cop who pulled me over in october nor the judge for traffic court mentioned anything about my speeding ticket. I even asked the judge if there were anymore fines i needed to pay. The judge said he didn't see anything, so i assumed i was cleared.
Tonight i got pulled over because a cop saw a light in my exhaust pipe (which i turned off immediately when i saw a car behind me). He followed me for about a mile then stopped me. He said my license was suspended and has been since October. He put me in hand cuffs and in the back seat of his car while he searched my car. He then proceeded to tell me he found enough marijuana residue in my car to put me in jail. This IS ODD BECAUSE I DONT DONT DONT smoke, i just support MEDICAL marijuana.
Why wasn't i informed of this over due charge in october or november, when it was said to be on my record???
And what can i do about it????
They are also switching my ticket from Clallam county (where i got the ticket) to King county (where i live now).
I cant pay it off till they send me what i'm supposed to pay.
