Story

King County District Court has unveiled an online, e-mitigation system for citizens to deal with traffic tickets. The Hon. Donna Tucker, presiding judge of the Court, made the news public at a meeting of the Metropolitan King County Council’s Law, Justice and Emergency Management Committee.

The system is designed to aid citizens in their court interactions, while also lowering the costs and time associated with the legal process.

“With the development and implementation of our new e-mitigation program, citizens can more easily respond to tickets and the Court can address tickets much faster,” said Tucker. “Overall, the process has become much more efficient—saving both time and money.”

Councilmember Kathy Lambert, Chair of the committee, said, “I’m thrilled with the court’s great step forward in the use of technology. I’ve attended two conferences on the courts of the future and learned about the latest technological advances; it’s very encouraging to see these processes implemented here. We’re utilizing technology to make our courts more accessible and efficient. This will help our citizens resolve their issues quickly.”

The system allows judges immediate online access to many sources of data, including tickets issued and other various reports.

“King County government should keep pace with the technological achievements of the private sector,” Lambert said. “I am happy to see more aspects of the court of the future continuing to be implemented to make the system work better for our citizens.”
