WA Supreme Court: Negligent Driving Infraction Must Occur Within Officer Presence
Oh why couldn't the appellant have been named Magoo?!
Anyhowwwwwww, Magee said he hadn't driven down the road in the wrong direction, but maneuvered otherwise in order to get nose to nose with a disabled vehicle. The officer was called to the scene, and, though she didn't see it, concluded he had to have driven the wrong way to get to where he was. Buuuut, the statute is pretty clear that an officer can only cite under RCW 46.63.030 if she sees the infraction (or another officer sees it).
