Then, if the police officer who gave you the ticket does not show up on the hearing date you are home free. If he does show up you will have the chance to cross examine him. But, either way, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.If I have not Answered your question, please feel free to ask me for further clarification, If I have Answered your question, Please be kind enough to leave a positive rating, It will NOT cost you anything, but it is the only way that JustAnswer will give me credit for assisting you.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you. I got a message that you requested me to help you with this matter.
First, get your tail light fixed. Second, get a police officer to verify and certify that the tail light was fixed. It does not have to be the same officer who gave you the ticket. Third, take the ticket to court along with your proof of having fixed the light (which the officer signed), pay the dismissal fee, and the matter is taken care of.

Otherwise, I hope you will rate my answer positively as that is the ONLY way I receive credit for my work, and doing so will NOT cost you an additional fee.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
