TRAFFIC TICKETS IN WASHINGTON
Washington State Parking Tickets

If you own a car, odds are you've gotten your fair share of parking tickets. Especially if you live in Seattle. Washington parking tickets aren't just reserved for the big cities. Just about every jurisdiction in the state is authorized to issue and collect upon parking tickets. However, these are not the same as traffic infractions.

Parking tickets are what we call "non-moving violations." What this legalese means is pretty simple. Parking tickets are tickets you receive when your vehicle is not in motion. Since your vehicle is not moving, you get a ticket for a non-moving violation.

A common misconception is that parking tickets and non-traffic tickets are the same. You might think so because parking violations happen when you're not in traffic. However, that's not always the case. The state of Washington classifies parking tickets in their own category: Parking tickets. Non-traffic tickets are their own category entirely.

Here are a few examples of parking tickets in Washington. Keep in mind that these violations can change from town to town:

  • Double parking
  • Parking in front of a fire hydrant
  • Parking in a handicap spot
  • Blocking traffic
  • Parking in a no-parking zone

Here are a few examples of non-traffic tickets in Washington:

  • Loitering
  • Littering
  • Animal-related violations
  • Fire code violations
