Carpool/HOV violation in Tacoma

negligent drivingMost individuals should be familiar with carpool violations. For the most part, those lanes are in affect 24 hours a day with some exceptions. The lane is to be only used if you have the proper number of individuals in the vehicle – 2+ and in some places 3+. If you do not have the proper number of individuals and it is not an off hour where applicable, then you cannot use the lane.

The biggest excuse officers and Judges hear from people who are caught driving in the HOV lane improperly is that they were only using it to pass slower traffic. That is not a valid reason to use the lane. It is not a passing lane. If it was, that lane would be completely clogged during rush hour with everyone trying to pass everyone.

A carpool violation has the same problem as a failure to obey traffic control device ticket. It is a pretty black and white citation. Were you in the lane? Where you the only person in the car? Not terribly complicated. Despite that fact, an experienced attorney often can find a fault in the ticket or work out a favorable resolution with a prosecutor so don’t give up. Contact the Law Offices of Jason Newcombe to have one of our experienced traffic attorneys handle your matter.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.
