Can I contest a ticket for expired plates that I received when my car wouldn't start?

Asked about 1 year ago - Chicago, IL

My plates sticker expired 3 days ago. I received a ticket for expired plates last night. My car has been sitting in front of my house because it will not start. Is there a way to contest the ticket, since I wasn't driving the car?
