My husband put light blue headlights in my car thinking since they are so light it will be fine. Well we got pulled over and got a ticket for it.
Court fines vary court to court. Call the Clerk of Court and ask for the fine amount. If you show the the Solicitor a receipt for replacing the headlights in correction then they may have mercy and dismiss the charge.

This is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a $1K fine and 12 months in jail. However, as you may have guessed, you will usually be given a small fine which can vary from court to court and may be in the $250-500 range. Most courts also assess a surcharge to pay for court programs; that can add up to 45% to your fine. Sometimes, if you can show proof that you removed the blue lights, the prosecutor may reduce the fine or dismiss the ticket. Speak with the prosecutor and show dated photos where you removed the lights. And, as always, you are better off being represented by a lawyer who can speak for you and usually obtain a better deal. Best wishes.
