A: A Washington attorney would be able to advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. If the card in question resulted in the ticket, it's difficult to say whether it would be adequate in court as a defense without seeing the start and end dates and times of coverage on the face of the card. Sometimes the court will require proof in the form of a letter from the insurance carrier confirming that on the day in question insurance coverage was in full force and effect for the vehicle. That is as a general matter; check with a Washington attorney for the most reliable guidance. Good luck
