Its is your responsibility to check your N/L sign, tire pressure and wear conditions, headlights, brake lights, turnsignals, reverse lights, etc before operating a vehicle.
In other words, the only way you would be able to get away with something like that is if some random person ran up to your car at a red light and stole your Driver sign. Ofcourse that's whether or not the cop/ judge decides to believe you.
From what i've heard, police get pay + half/ double pay (on court day) and a day strictly for court cases so don't count on him/her not showing up and winning your court case.
You can go ahead and dispute it if you want but every cop and judge has heard that same excuse. If i were you, I'd just pay the ticket.
