After a year they will send the ticket information to Washington dmv which will result in your license being suspended in your home state. Happened to me two thanksgivings ago. Lucky enough the cop was my girlfriend uncle or I would have gone to jail that night. I didn’t even know my license was suspended
i got a similar thing in BC last year with a rental car for parking in a reserved spot and paying regular parking charges. . they sent the bill home in 2 months through the dmv and the rental car company. plus a late fee.
