Where I'm from, OP could easily go to that officer's command, show his valid insurance info, and have the summons voided right there without having to go to court for it.

Not sure why you're getting downvoted- you're right. I would bet the cop wouldn't even show up, aka instant win.

Cops are just ppl. Brilliant to total dumbass. Like a box of chocolate you never know what you'll get. You did right by talking sense and figuring out you got Einstein and taking the ticket. Show the judge and you win. No show and pay a fine

Absolutely fight it. Not sure what the policy is in OP's state, but normally a traffic hearing costs around $25. Bring proof of insurance and the magistrate will have no choice but to drop it since the officer cited you didn't have insurance.

In California, if you register to fight it, and you show but the officer doesn't, you win. You will need to pay the full amount of the ticket (bail) in advance, but will get it fully refunded when you "win." Even if the officer shows up, you have proof you DID have insurance on the date of the ticket being written. Your insurance company will happily fax/email you proof if you ask. Easy win, if still a pain-in-the-ass to deal with.

My comment was originally like the two pervious and one under me so I decided to waste your time by making you read my comment clarifying why it like so.

Well if it's worth it you can always go to court to argue against the cop and the ticket. Also you can report the cop for the incident. But depending on where you live, court can be expensive.

There's always the option of bringing this to court. You should be able to get the ticket turned over.
