I received a ticket for a violation of VC-26101, tinted brake lights. The ticket is correctable because the lights can be swapped out and the tint can be taken off. The officer marked it as a non-correctable violation. When I tried to have it signed off because I took off the tint at the local station the lieutenant told me he could not sign it off because the officer checked the non-correctable box. I wrote a letter to the court asking them to modify my ticket to a correctable violation and to dismiss a violation of VC-24004 written on the same ticket because VC-24004 states that I can't operate a vehicle after being told by a police officer it is not in compliance, unless I need to drive said vehicle back home to bring the car withon compliance....(see additional info below please)the court wrote me a letter back denying my request for a modification and denying my request to dismiss violation 24004 VC. I really don't want to pay a $450-$500 fine for something that I can correct for a $25 fee. My friend received a ticket in violation of 26101 last month, but his lights were completely blacked out and his violation was a correctable violation. My tint is a slight grayish tint and mine is not correctable. PS: We both have the same make and model car.
