I-90 Milepost 208
Ritzville cops are no longer content pulling over unsuspecting drivers that are going a mile or two over the speed limit on I-90. They’ve found a more lucrative way to line their pocketbooks. They are now pulling over cars that drive past the unfortunate folks that are getting a ticket. If you do not completely change lanes when you pass them (even if the lane is full of faster moving traffic) they will pull you over and issue a “failure to yield to a stationary emergency vehicle” ticket (statute 46.61.212). This is considered a “moving violation” and carries a $191 fine. There is no defense… it is the officers word against the motorists word.
