Electronic Filing Of Excuses For Traffic Violations

A court in Yakima, Washington has determined that drivers will be permitted to communicate with the judge by electronic mail with their explanations or excuses to dispute a traffic ticket. Traffic violators will have the opportunity to compose their appeal to the judge from the convenience of their own home computer and not have to face an overcrowded courtroom and potentially miss a day from their job. These filings demonstrate that more and more administrative systems will be functioning from a Internet-based system.

The following questions have been addressed in this article:
