AGO 1968 NO. 28 > Aug 29 1968

The Traffic Rules for Courts of Limited Jurisdiction, as promulgated by the Washington Supreme Court, do not apply to violations of the provisions of chapter 81.80 RCW, relating to motor freight carriers, so as to require the use of a Uniform Traffic Ticket and Complaint by the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission in proceedings against violators of this chapter.  Instead, such violations are governed by the Criminal Rules for Courts of Limited Jurisdiction, as amended, which provide for the use of a similar uniform ticket (citation and notice to appear) only if it is to serve as the complaint in the criminal prosecution.
