You can fight the ticket, certainly. Make sure beforehand that the law doesn't say that both light bulbs have to be operational. Since he wrote the ticket for no proof of insurance, you might have a better chance of fighting that - show the judge the valid card, show that it was valid at the time you were stopped, and you might beat the ticket. Unless the cop says "no, he never showed me anything but the expired insurance" and if you don't have any way to prove that you did, you might be SOL.

Presuming that a ticket for a burned out license light bulb is less expensive than a "no proof of insurance" ticket, you might get it bargained down to that.

Yes, it sux. As many have pointed out, this is a revenue generator.
