In Washington State, a racing charge applies when the driver is found to have been comparing speeds to another vehicle. Even if you were not driving over the speed limit, you can still be charged with Seattle racing. Racing constitutes a reckless driving offense, which is a serious charge and can have consequences for your insurance rates as well as your driving record.

At the Law Offices of Jason S. Newcombe, the goal of our Seattle racing attorney team is to provide the best legal defense possible for each of our clients without judgment or prejudice.

If you have been charged with racing, know that accepting the charges is not your only option – by consulting with our team of Seattle racing lawyers, you’ll gain a better understanding of the legal ramifications of your case and how to best handle your situation. Through research, solid interviews, and our experience, our legal team will fight diligently to have the charges against you as well as your sentence reduced or even dropped.

I’ve been charged with racing in Seattle, WA. What will happen to me?

Under RCW 46.61.530, a charge of racing in Seattle applies when the individual is found to have “willfully compared or contested speeds of operation of one or more motor vehicles.”

A racing charge will be prosecuted as a reckless driving case, which is a gross misdemeanor and punishable by the following:

  • Up to one year in jail.
  • A fine of up to $5,000.
  • A mandatory 30-day driver’s license suspension. The judge has no flexibility in this – meaning that if convicted, your license will be suspended for thirty days.
  • The defendant will receive one count against them under Washington’s Habitual Traffic Offender laws.

Upon receiving three strikes within any five-year period, the defendant’s driver’s license will be revoked for seven years. Your Seattle racing attorney will be able to explain this program in detail.

Why hire a Seattle racing lawyer?

We understand the stress, anxiety, and fear that you’re experiencing after being charged with racing. Perhaps you feel that you’ve been charged unjustly and you’re frustrated or angry over your situation. Our team of Seattle racing lawyers is here to answer your questions and formulate the best solution for you.

Because a Seattle, WA racing charge is based on what the arresting police officer saw – or thought that he or she saw – discrepancies between your version of events and that of the police are common. Police usually base the racing charge on the fact that the vehicles involved were speeding excessively or revving their engines at a traffic stop. If you feel that you have been unjustly accused, it’s important to speak with an experienced Seattle racing attorney to help make your voice heard in court.

With over 30 years of experience defending our clients against traffic offenses, our resourceful and knowledgeable legal team is prepared to thoroughly review your case and build a defense to help you win your case.

Our Seattle racing lawyer team will comb through police records, witness statements, and the way your case was handled from the moment you were pulled over to the way you were treated in jail. Our thoroughness, ingenuity, and compassion for our clients set us apart.
