8.2 CITATIONS FOR NO INSURANCE If a defendant who was cited with a violation of RCW 46.30.020 presents to a court clerk or administrator evidence that the person had in effect at the time of the citation liability insurance as required by that statute, then upon the payment of twenty-five ($25) administrative costs, the case shall be dismissed and the court clerk/administrator shall be authorized to make appropriate notation of the dismissal in the Court file. If a defendant who was cited with a violation of RCW 46.30.020, for failure to have liability insurance is able to show evidence that the person did not have insurance at the time of the citation but has subsequently obtained liability insurance in conformity with the requirements of the statutes, then the penalty upon a first violation of such statute shall be reduced to two hundred seventy-five dollars ($275); upon a second violation shall be reduced to three hundred seventy-five dollars ($375); in either event the court clerk/administrator shall be authorized to enter a finding that the infraction was committed, and make appropriate notations in the Court record, and the person shall be relieved of any further need to appear in court in connection with that particular infraction.
