1.6 MONETARY PENALTY FOR UNSCHEDULED INFRACTIONS The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) has interpreted School Zone Speeding pursuant to RCW 46.61.440 to be an "unscheduled" infraction under IRLJ 6.2 (b). On the assumption that this is a correct interpretation, the Marysville Municipal Court has by this rule established a local rule as permitted by IRLJ 6.2 (b) to make the School Zone Speeding penalties consistent with IRLJ 6.2 (d) and the obvious intent of the legislature in adopting RCW 46.61.440 (3). Pursuant to IRLJ 6.2 (b) this rule adopts as the penalty for speeding in a school zone the monetary base penalty set for in IRLJ 6.2 (d) for the relevant speed, but then doubled pursuant to RCW 46.61.440 (3). The base penalty, together with the statutory assessments may not be waived, reduced or suspended. The court will not consider a request for deferred findings under RCW 46.63.070 (5) in a school zone speeding case. Penalty schedule 1-5 mph over limit $157.00 6-10 mph over limit $177.00 11-15 mph over limit $239.00 16-20 mph over limit $321.00 21-25 mph over limit $423.00 26-30 mph over limit $526.00 31-35 mph over limit $628.00 Over 35 mph over limit $751.00 (Effective 09/01/2006)
