AWC continuing to work on traffic-based financial obligation work group

AWC is actively participating in a work group convened by the Office of the Attorney General on consolidation of an individual’s traffic-based financial obligations. One of the goals of the work group is to develop a unified and affordable system for drivers to pay back their traffic fines. The work group has been meeting regularly since the passage of the enabling legislation, SB 6360, and contains members from local government, courts, defense attorneys, and related private industry interests.

The ACLU recently released a report on traffic based financial obligations, specifically on the offense of driving while license suspended – third degree (DWLS III), and its impact on Washingtonians. The work group will likely be considering this document and other resources during its work.
