I recently received a ticket from an officer at LAX for running a red light. I did not see the light, nor could I argue with the

officer. To make matters worse, I did not have the most updated insurance card so I also recieved a no proof of insurance ticket. I called my insurance company and they sent me temporary insurance cards, as well as, a letter stating I had insurance at the time of the ticket. I just called the courthouse today to schedule a court date. Will this ticket be dropped if i show proof of insurance?

    Answered . The proof of insurance ticket will be dropped if you show you had insurance at the time of the violation. Make sure that your documents unambiguously show that you were covered on the date of the citation. Not seeing the light isn't a defense to running one, but you might have other defenses available.

    Answered . The ticket for no proof of insurance should be dropped if you have the proper documentation. The red light ticket may be dropped if the officer fails to appear. If the officer does appear the court may work with you, i.e. traffic school, or no points on your record, etc. Good luck.
