I was pulled over this week for a burned out headlight (which I was unaware of at the time) in Carver County and did not have proof of insurance in the vehicle. I found the current insurance card and read over the instructions for the citation. It says that if you have insurance, you may mail proof of insurance to the court administration before the court date and lists a court date and time. Do I need to mail proof, appear in court AND pay a fine? Or does this mean that mailing the proof is enough? What exactly does this mean? The officer shoved the papers at me and walked away without explaining anything.
