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.
