MARCH 2014: MYTRAFFICMAN.NET PROUD SPONSOR @ THE SKAGIT SPEEDWAY
MYTRAFFICMAN.NET PRESS RELEASE: Skagit Speedway
MYTRAFFICMAN.NET is dedicated to promoting youth sports from baseball to racing. These activities offer young people a positive experience to balance the increasingly fast pace of information from the internet, changing trends and the pressure to fit in.
The Races, in particular, have been a great opportunity for us to experience the inspiring stories of so many of the drivers, and to witness first hand the great influence it has on their lives. Besides learning to balance between cooperation and competition, the young drivers (some as young as 9 years old) learn to respect the driving rules and to appreciate the responsibility they have to other drivers, both on and off the track.
We are proud to participate as fans and sponsors, and look forward to a great season at the Skagit Speedway. We’ll be rooting for Tristin “The Piston” Thomas in the Mytrafficman.NET 9t car. See you at the Races!

DUI PENALTY FOR REFUSING A BREATH TEST IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL
OCTOBER 11, 2013 (KING COUNTY): OUR SEATTLE DUI LAWYERS, 6 weeks ago, got a King County Judge to rule that a breath test machine refusal was a constitutional right that cannot be used against you, and on October 11, 2013 the DUI TEAM got the judge to agree that refusing the field sobriety tests (ROADSIDE TESTS) is similarly a constitutional right. Call us at 360-734-0908 to learn what that means for your DUI case.
SEVERE DUI PENALTIES START SEPTEMBER 28, 2013
Our Bellingham DUI Lawyers are here to explain what the changes will mean for your DUI case. (Fines go up to $10,000 in some cases, and probation violations could result in license suspension plus an automatic 30days jail). The Law, signed by Governor Inslee, goes into effect September 28, and Our Kirkland and Seattle DUI Lawyers understand the impact it will have on new DUI arrests. (Ignition Interlock Devices or 24/7 alcohol monitoring will be required, even while you are presumed innocent).
That's why you need a strong team of DUI Lawyers on your side in Bellingham, Bremerton, Port Orchard, Mt. Vernon, or Burlington Call NOW: 360-734-0908; and for our DUI Lawyers in Okanogan, Vancouver, Ellensburg, Everett or Kirkland, Call 206-905-7705
ARE DUI CHECKPOINTS LEGAL IN BELLINGHAM OR OKANOGAN OR KIRKLAND OR PORT ORCHARD?
Our DUI Lawers in Bellingham, Okanogan & Kirkland & Port Orchard want you to know that DUI CHECKPOINTS ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL in Washington State: First, DUI Checkpoints are still unconstitutional under Washington State Law. That means any evidence they find when they make you pull over for the checkpoint (e.g. odor of alcohol, slurred speech, poor coordination) would all be suppressed in Bellingham DUI Courts, in Port Orchard DUI Courts, and every other Washington Court as fruits of an illegal stop.
There are 3 levels to a police DUI stop: 1) purely social (e.g. officer says, "hi, can I talk to you for a minute?") and no grounds for that stop are required, but you can say NO just like you would to any other stranger; 2) investigatory "Terry" v. Ohio Stop where the officer stops you to investigate a suspicion, not just a hunch, and that requires a reasonable and articulable suspicion, otherwise the evidence will be suppressed (thrown out) in court; And 3) An Arrest (which is more than a detention and would make a reasonable person feel arrested) requires Probable Cause which is a reasonable belief, not just a suspicion, that you committed a crime. If they can't justify these stops, all the evidence obtained gets suppressed.
Finally, Washington State Law says you have the right to a lawyer at every "critical stage" of the case. That would require something like being handcuffed, placed in back of the police car and questioned (definitely a critical stage). If you need a DUI lawyer in Bellingham, Okanogan, Kirkland, Port Orchard, Seattle, or Everett, please CALL NOW: 360-734-0908 or 206-905-7705. We offer a FREE Consultaion, so you can understand your rights and your case, and to help you make informed decisions.
Tough DUI Cases Require Strong Criminal Defense Strategies for Great Results.
May 2013 Results: DUI dismissed for lack of arresting agency jurisdiction; No Vehicular Assault Charge and DUI reduced to Reckless Driving in a .31, rollover accident with faulty implied consent warnings; .23 DUI reduced to Negligent Driving for unreliable BAC reading. Two DUI cases reduced to Negligent Driving 2nd Degree traffic infractions for unjustified stops or arrests without probable cause. These DUI Cases happen in Port Orchard, Kitsap County, Bellingham, WA, Kirkland, King County, and Everett, Snohomish County where DUI charges and alcohol offenses are prosecuted very strictly.
WHAT A STRONG DUI DEFENSE STRATEGY MEANS FOR YOU:
Prosecutor's across the State are getting more aggressive about DUI convictions. Everett Prosecutors, for example, consider an offer of MANDATORY MINIMUM jail, license suspension, IID, and probation to be a standard offer on a first offense DUI. Skagit County and Seattle, Redmond, Bellevue, and Kirkland prosecutors will not negotiate a DUI over a certain BAC breath test reading unless there is a significant legal issue. So, a strong DUI defense strategy means that you will be prepared to respond to these attacks with confidence. 2013 Results speak for themselves: First offense Marijuana DUI reduced to a traffic infraction; 3rd Offense DUI reduced to Negligent Driving 1st Degree (1 day jail only); 3rd offense DWLS 1st degree reduced to DWLS 3rd degree (20 days community work crew instead of 6 months jail).

Light Up Now, and YOU MAY STILL GET BURNED?
Although some Puget Sound Prosecutor's Offices have decided to drop small possession cases, others may continue to prosecute them for up to a year. And, adults under 21 get no reprieve from I-502. And, as an added precaution, the initiative creates a new Per Se (strict liability) DUI for people driving under the influence of just 5 nano-grams of THC, similar to the .08 rule for alcohol.
