Is it possible to get out of a parking ticket because my car wouldn't start?

Is it possible to get out of a ticket because my car wouldn't start? I was parked on my street during a street cleaning day. My car was dead. I called AAA to come and jump it and then took it to the shop and got a new battery. I sent a letter with all of the information and my ticket in, but they said, they cannot dismiss my citation "based solely on this reason". Is there a 'specific' reason I do not know? Or should know? Please help.
Thank you

  1. You would have to enter a plea of not guilty and go to trial. This really depends on the judge. Bring all papers you received from the AAA and new battery purchase.
