You got to show proof. That is what it is all about. Seeing as how it is possible to make this acommodation by showing (in court) that you were insured w/o a way to prove it,at the time of the citation. It would seem logical that the one thing that was legal (insurance) would also be waved.
I have recieved a "no insurance ticket" before 'cause I couldn't show prof that it was insured, ie: didn't have the new card. The moment I went to court to show that I was insured, but didn't have my new insurance card they let it go with a $25 court proccessing fee.
I am sure that with a small amount of persistance and logical explanation the fine will be dropped by half
