When a violation is knowing and willful.

(1) A violation is knowing and willful for the purpose of chapter 19.340 RCW when the actor as defined in WAC 284-180-330 who committed the violation was aware or should have been aware of each act, failure to act, or other facts or circumstances that led to the violation. A violation is knowing and willful regardless of whether the person who committed the violation had a malicious motive, intended to violate the law, or knew that the law was being violated.
(2) A person should have been aware of an act, failure to act, or other facts or circumstances when the person had information that would lead a reasonable person in the same situation to be aware of the act, failure to act, or other facts or circumstances. A person is presumed to have intended the natural and probable consequences of their voluntary acts.
